The World Bank has a clear vision: A world free of poverty. When integrity prevails, projects deliver and the poor benefit. When they fail, development is set back and the poor suffer. That‘s why at the World Bank, we take the position that Rule of Law equals Development. In the Bank’s pursuit of results, openness and accountability, we assert integrity in our operations, without reservation. At the heart of our strategy is a commitment to remove the conditions that dent international security and make corruption flourish.
