Discussions on Governance
Mr. Stephen Zimmerman, Director of Operations for the World Bank Integrity Vice Presidency, will discuss the challenges faced by the World Bank fighting corruption while pursuing an aggressive development agenda including a recent investigation of corruption that led to the Bank’s withdrawal from financing the construction of the Padma bridge in Bangladesh and the innovative tools employed to try to strike a balance between the need for integrity and pursuing a transformational development project beset by allegations of corruption.
