New World Bank strategy for West Bank and Gaza

The World Bank is giving $US 55 million to support development assistance to the West Bank and Gaza.

The bank says the funds will be used to promote private-sector growth and strengthen public institutions.

In a statement the organization said "the Bank's support will continue to focus on strengthening the institutions of a future Palestinian state to efficiently manage public finances while ensuring services to citizens."

The donation, announced Friday, must be approved by the banks board of governors.
