President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy held a meeting with the World Bank delegation led by Vice President for Europe and Central Asia Anna Bjerde.

The Head of State thanked the World Bank for the unprecedented support provided to Ukraine during the full-scale Russian invasion.

"We are grateful for the number of programs that the World Bank implements in Ukraine, especially after the start of a full-scale war. We thank you for the willingness to come to our aid even in the face of military challenges," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

Particular attention was paid to the provision of financing by donors under the coordination of the World Bank for projects to restore our country, primarily in the areas of transport infrastructure, electricity and healthcare.

The President emphasized the urgency of implementing programs for the fast recovery of destroyed infrastructure facilities, primarily residential buildings and educational institutions.

The Head of State separately noted the importance of implementing business insurance programs in Ukraine, which is especially relevant in the context of job creation.

During the meeting, the parties noted the importance of the further coordination of donors’ efforts by the World Bank and partners to provide Ukraine with the necessary assistance in a timely manner.
