The Vice Presidency for Sectors and Knowledge (VPS) is responsible for developing knowledge to support member countries in the design and execution of their development projects and programs, promoting integration and trade, supporting program and project executions, and expanding the Bank’s knowledge.

VPS supports dialogue with the countries and the preparation of each country strategy, and also designs and executes the Bank’s financial and non-financial products in the countries in sovereign guaranteed operations, regional programs, and programs to support regional integration. It also develops a demand-driven learning program for staff skills in support of business needs.
