The World Bank’s Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) for 2012-2016 focuses on supporting the government in improving equity through social services, infrastructure and competitiveness, while preserving macroeconomic stability.
The CPS is closely aligned with the government’s strategic vision of strong economic growth with greater inclusion. It focuses on areas in which the World Bank Group (WBG) can provide more added value. The CPS has four strategic objectives:
Increase access and quality of social services for the poor;
Connect the poor to services and markets;
Support sustainable growth and productivity; and
Promote inclusive governance and public sector performance.
As Peru is becoming a stronger middle-income country, demand for knowledge services is increasing. The government has also requested support for implementation of programs and projects.
