World Bank Ready to Share Experience with China-Proposed AIIB, World Bank President

英语新闻:

WASHINGTON, April 7 (Xinhua) -- World Bank welcomes the new development banks, such as China-proposed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and the New Development Bank established by the BRICS countries, and is ready to share experience with them, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said on Tuesday.

The new multilateral banks could help bridge financing gaps in areas such as infrastructure, energy, and water, said Kim in a speech delivered at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in advance of the World Bank/IMF Spring Meetings which will be held next week.

"We estimate that the world needs an additional US$ 1 to 1.5 trillion dollars every year to be invested in infrastructure -- roads, bridges, railways, airports, and energy plants. By 2030, we will most likely also need 40 percent more energy and face a 40 percent shortfall of water -- pressures that may well be further accelerated by climate change," he said.

With the right environment, labor and procurement standards, these new development banks have the potential to become great new forces in the economic development of poor countries in emerging markets, Kim said.

The World Bank will discuss with the Chinese and other officials about collaborations between the World Bank and the AIIB during the Spring meetings next week, he added.

In a teleconference held on Monday evening, the World Bank chief made the same remarks, saying although the AIIB discussions are still in an early stage, the World Bank is eyeing future collaborations with the new bank, as such collaborations would support economic development and benefit the poor and most vulnerable.

In the teleconference, Kim expressed the hope that when the AIIB starts running, it could participate in the World Bank-led Global Infrastructure Facility, a global platform that will facilitate the preparation and structuring of complex infrastructure Public-Private Partnerships and mobilize private sector and institutional investor capital.


When asked to comment on the issue that the United States did not join the AIIB, Kim said that "you can expect that there will be agreements and disagreements (between the U.S. and China)." He took the climate change deal that both countries reached in November as a positive demonstration for the collaboration between the two largest economic powers in the world.

In his Tuesday's speech, Kim also called on more efforts to help nearly a billion people living on less than 1.25 U.S. dollars a day to get out of poverty.

In order to end extreme poverty, he said countries should give priorities to issues, such as increasing agricultural productivity, building infrastructure that provides access to energy, irrigation, and markets, promoting greater and freer trade, investing in the health and education of women and children, and implementing social safety nets and providing social insurance.

世界银行行长金墉7日表示,世行欢迎亚洲基础设施投资银行(亚投行)的成立,并准备与之分享发展经验。

金墉在美国智库战略与国际问题研究中心为世行和国际货币基金组织春季会议作揭幕演讲时表示,每年全球基础设施建设的资金缺口约达1.5万亿美元。在正确的环境、劳工和采购标准下,新的多边开发银行有潜力成为支持减贫的一股重要力量。

金墉表示,世行希望与亚投行加强合作,尤其是在帮助穷国和最脆弱国家发展的领域。他希望亚投行加入世行倡导的“全球基础设施建设计划”。世行致力于通过这一平台促进公共和私营部门在复杂基础设施建设领域的合作,以及从私营部门和机构投资者中筹集资金。

对于美国未加入亚投行一事,金墉表示中美之间有共识也有分歧。他说,两国去年底达成的气候变化合作协议就显示了双方合作的积极面。
