The World Bank Group Consultation Hub provides a one-stop shop for everybody interested in consultations hosted by the World Bank Group. On this Hub, you can find all ongoing and planned consultations as well as those that were closed within the past year. Here you can find information on the subject of consultation, the scope and process of consultation, and on how you can contribute your views to the World Bank Group's decision-making process. The map illustrates where consultative meetings are held. We invite you to browse through all opportunities to submit feedback or search for specific consultations in a region or country or on a specific topic. You can also review feedback submitted by our stakeholders on a range of topics. Your views matter to the World Bank Group.
The World Bank Group has been a long-standing supporter of Africa on regional integration. Our current lending commitments for regional integration are over $10 billion, and we expect to scale-up this financial support during the coming years. We are proud of what Africa has achieved through our support, but there is much unfinished business. And we are keen to hear from you on what we can do to support African countries over the coming years. Your views and feedback will inform the new Regional Integration Strategy that the World Bank Group is preparing.
We would like to engage in a conversation with you over the coming three weeks on regional integration in Sub-Saharan Africa.

In the second week, we would turn the conversation to how is Africa doing on regional integration. In the third and final week, we would like to hear from you on what governments, privatesector and development partners can do to deepen integration.
