The 2012 Survey is the fourth round of the research, covering 100 countries, home to 89% of the world’s population. IBP Director Warren Krafchik and World Bank Institute Vice President Sanjay Pradhan discussed the results of the survey with high-level finance ministry officials of Afghanistan, Brazil and Liberia.
