Written by on July 8, 2024

The World Bank’s newly appointed Country Director for Nigeria, Dr. Ndiamé Diop, has assumed his new position today, succeeding Shubham Chaudhuri who completed his term in the same capacity.

Before his assignment to Abuja, Dr. Diop served as the World Bank Country Director for Brunei, Malaysia, Philippines, and Thailand, based in Manila.

In this position, he more than tripled the Bank’s financing to the Philippines to scale up the Bank’s support to key economic reforms, policy-based budget support programs and the nation’s endeavors to bridge disparities in various sectors, including nutrition, stunting healthcare, and many others.
