KATHMANDU: The World Bank (WB) has appointed Johannes Zutt as its new country director for Nepal and Bangladesh. Zutt joined the WB office in Kathmandu on Tuesday.

Zutt will guide the WB’s engagements in Nepal — aiming to help reduce poverty and promote shared prosperity, the bank said in a statement. The statement further added that his priorities will include supporting the Nepali government in its efforts to promote sustainable development, inclusive growth and good governance.
