Guido Rurangwa says Solomon Islands is very diverse and a proud World Bank member.
Mr. Rurangwa says, he looks forward to working closely with the people and governments of the Solomon Islands to continue to grow the World Bank’s work in areas including transport, energy, and agriculture, while also offering assistance in potential new areas for development and improvement.
He will oversee nine World Bank projects across Solomon Islands and Vanuatu with total commitments of US$164.47 million, with the potential for more activity in both countries as relationships continue to grow.
