During the meeting, the parties discussed the agreement "Emergency response to COVID-19 and vaccination in Ukraine."

Mr. Banerji noted that the bank is ready to provide Ukraine with USD 230 million in December 2021 as part of the global COVAX initiative.

The question of developing a World Bank Country Partnership Strategy was also raised. It aims to achieve sustainable economic recovery and growth in the country.
