A qualified Advisory Panel of World Bank representatives, experts from Ministry of Education and science, private sector and media representatives will assess the projects and will short list the finalists of Development Marketplace. The final event will take place in the week of 21 of May, 2007.  The event will be opened for public and the finalists are supposed to display their ideas in an attractive way as well as to present their proposal to the final jury.
