A delegation from the World Bank is returning to Antigua and Barbuda today to continue work on a project assisting the government with public sector transformation, labour market policies and social protection.

The World Bank is expected to fund the project with $20 million over a three-year period, according to the government.

The meetings are aimed at producing a final document on the project; the World Bank’s mission in the country will end on Friday.

Antigua has recently embarked on a wider plan to transform the country’s public sector, and is also working with the Organization of American States to review the legislative framework governing the public service.
