World Bank (WB) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Kristalina Georgieva recently said Bangladesh has shown the world what can be done through disaster preparedness and adaptation despite being extremely vulnerable to climate change.
"I look forward to learning more about its successful innovations and how they can be applied elsewhere," said the WB CEO who arrives here on her first visit recently.
During the two-day visit, she met Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and senior government officials as well as visiting a World Bank-supported project.
The visit will help further deepen the longstanding partnership between Bangladesh and the World Bank Group, the Washington-based lending agency said in a statement.
Georgieva also joined the Third Executive Meeting of the Global Commission on Adaptation held in Dhaka.
