Pakistanis walk out from WB “consultation”
News||18 June 2001|update 23|
On May 17, representatives of non-governmental and community-based organisations, academics, professionals and university students, walked out from a World Bank 'public consultation' on its Country Assistance Strategy in Karachi. They were protesting at the Bank's failure to organise proper consultations. In a written statement protesters said "if the World Bank is serious, a thorough and frank discussion of past policies and strategy will have to be undertaken with representatives of civil society, prior to formulating new initiatives."
