Primary tabs

The World Bank is interested in gauging the views of clients and partners who are either involved in development in Sao Tome and Principe (STP) or who observe activities related to social and economic development. The World Bank Country Assessment Survey is meant to give the World Bank's team that works in STP, greater insight into how the Bank's work is perceived. This is one tool the World Bank uses to assess the views of its critical stakeholders. With this understanding, the World Bank hopes to develop more effective strategies, outreach and programs that support development in STP.
