The World Bank Group serves client countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Clients range from oil-dependent high-income countries to lower middle-income, IDA and FCV countries. Four years ago, in response to the region's changing circumstances... the World Bank Group launched a new strategy focused on promoting peace and stability. To support the new economy, the WBG is expanding the MENA strategy. Three new priorities have been added to the original four pillars of renewing the social contract, building resilience for refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs), developing regional cooperation and supporting recovery and reconstruction. The three new priorities are: harnessing the region's human capital, leveraging technologies for a new digital economy, and developing the private sector through maximizing finance for development.
