Consideration Is Being Made For An Increase In Assistance

Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves said consideration is being made for an increase in the level of assistance being provided by the World Bank, to assist in the ongoing disaster recovery effort.

He made the point while addressing a news conference yesterday to mark the official presentation of a 320 thousand US dollar grant from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Dr. Gonsalves said the World Bank has already provided significant assistance to this country following the December floods.
