Transport Mission Presentations

On February 1-4, 2016 representatives of Austria, Canada, Spain, the United States, and the Netherlands Ethiopia-Road-Construction organized a joint trade mission focusing on opportunities for the transportation sector at the World Bank Group (WBG), Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Asian Development Bank (ADB), Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), and European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

The mission provided companies a great opportunity to meet key experts at the International Financial Institutions (IFI’s) in the transportation sector. The experts discussed current and upcoming projects involving rural and inter-urban road upgrades, urban transportation, railways, global road safety, as well as projects for port and aviation sectors. Companies were given insight in the requirements and constraints relating to projects, and ways of gaining access to projects funded by the multilateral banks. They learned how projects are launched and carried out and how their company can stay informed of upcoming projects.

We understand that these missions are not accessible for every company that is why we have decided to share two  presentations:

The first presentation includes general information about the World Bank Group discussing the different institutions that create the World Bank Group and a quick snap shot about the institutions history.

The second presentation discusses the procurement process of the World Bank. As you may know the World Bank has revised its procurement policy document. We posted a great blog article  about this topic which lists the key changes.

Please let us know if you have any questions about joining a mission in the future.
