Public Information Center (PIC)

Available in: العربية

The PIC’s mission is to promote a broader public understanding of the Bank's role in the different countries and constitute a knowledge center and forum for dialogue and exchange.

The Lebanon PIC was established in partnership with the Institute of Finance in January 2005. Housed in the Library of Finance, it provides visitors with access to various documents on the World Bank portfolio of projects in Lebanon, sector reports, and other World Bank publications. The center also organizes events to further promote the exchange of ideas on key issues facing the country’s development.

In keeping with its World Bank policy of disclosure, which aims to introduce its activities and explain its work to the widest possible audience, a new disclosure policy of operational information was approved by the Bank’s Board of Directors in August 1993. As part of that policy, the PIC was established to make available to the public a range of operational documents that were restricted to official users.
