The Middle East and North Africa Region Vice-Presidency (MNA) serves a population of 355 million living in 20 countries. The mission of MNA is to foster sustainable growth with a focus on job creation and poverty reduction, economic and social inclusion, and good governance. The MNA region has enormous potential, but long-standing problems like power shortages, youth unemployment, and lack of access to finance have conspired to hold back economic growth in the region.
The mission of the MNA region is to support the Bank Group’s overarching goals of ending poverty and boosting shared prosperity. A pre-requisite for that is to support efforts towards peace and stability in the Region. The MNA Region is now implementing an ambitious strategy towards that end by a focus on four pillars – “the 4 Rs” – Renewing the social contract; Regional cooperation; Resilience to migration shocks; and Reconstruction and recovery, which apply to different degrees to the various countries in the Region.
