World Bank supports Roma official

THE WORLD Bank praised the work of the government's special appointee for Roma issues, Klára Orgovánová, saying she had "achieved very positive results" with the over $278,000 the bank granted her office in 2000.

Orgovánová used the money to build up her government plenipotentiary office, to train its staff in working with the Roma, and to build a regional office in east Slovakia's Prešov.
