Consultation Plan for World Bank Group Thailand Country Partnership Framework FY2025-2029

Every five years the Thai government and the World Bank Group agree on a new CPF, which outlines their joint program for developing the country through poverty reduction and shared prosperity.

The CPF and the documents it is based on are formulated through a consultation process with a wide range of stakeholders in the country. These stakeholders include:

  • Government agencies from across the country
  • Academia and think tanks
  • Development partners
  • Civil society
  • Private sector
  • Private citizens

The objective of these consultations is to seek views on the key development challenges facing Thailand, and the areas where the World Bank should concentrate its support so that it has the greatest possible impact in promoting inclusion, reducing poverty, and sharing prosperity on a livable planet.


The consultation meetings with each stakeholder group will be structured as combined plenary presentations followed by discussions, plus small focus group break-out discussions where practical. These meetings will be scheduled to run for 1.5-2 hours each.

Consultations with government, CSOs/NGOs/think-tanks and the private sector will be conducted in English with simultaneous interpretation in Thai. Consultations with development partners will be in English only.


Invitations and meeting materials in English and Thai will be issued to invitees around ten days before the scheduled meetings. General background materials will be available on this consultation webpage.
