World Bank Appoints East African Regional Director


The World Bank Group has appointed Mr. Philippe Dongier as the new Country Director for Burundi, Tanzania, and Uganda based in Dar-Es-Salaam. Mr. Dongier replaces John Murray McIntire who has retired from the Bank.

Mr. Dongier started his new assignment on February 27, 2012 and has spent the last three weeks familiarizing himself with the opportunities, challenges and work programs in the three countries.

“I am very excited by the strong prospects of the three countries, in the context of a dynamic East African Community. Tanzania and Uganda have enjoyed long periods of macroeconomic stability and growth, are now looking at large likely revenues from the oil and gas industries, and face the challenge of achieving broad-based job creation”, said Mr. Dongier

“It is also a period of hope for Burundi, a country showing signs of being on the move, while rebuilding itself from conflict. I will strive to work closely with the governments and national stakeholders of the three countries in support of their growth and poverty reduction objectives and ensure that we respond to their needs in a way that benefits their citizens and provides a better quality of life”, adds Dongier.

A Canadian national, Mr. Dongier joined the Bank in 1998 as a Senior Private Sector Development Specialist in the Transport, Urban and Water Department. He has worked in Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and Africa.

He worked as Manager for Afghanistan Reconstruction in 2002-2004. His latest assignment (2006-2012) was as Sector Manager, Information and Communication Technologies, leading World Bank support to telecommunications and ICT policy reforms and programs globally.
