World Bank Group : President Jim Yong Kim to Visit China

11/22/2012 | 01:44am US/Eastern

BEIJING, November 22, 2012 - World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim will visit China from November 27 to 30 - his first official visit since becoming Bank president in July 2012.  

The World Bank Group and China have enjoyed a 30-year partnership, with knowledge becoming an increasingly important focus of the relationship. Kim will reinforce the Bank Group's common commitment to ending poverty and building shared prosperity, and explore innovative approaches to help China share its successful development experience with other countries. 

During his visit, Kim will meet state leaders and ministers of the Chinese Government, with discussions to center on the World Bank Group's new Country Partnership Strategy for China endorsed earlier this month. The Strategy focuses on supporting greener growth, promoting more inclusive development and advancing mutually beneficial relations with the world.

The Bank President will also visit Sichuan Province to see firsthand how post disaster reconstruction following the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake is delivering better services for the people.

Kim will be accompanied by IFC Executive Vice President and CEO Jin-Yong Cai, World Bank East Asia and Pacific Regional Vice President Pamela Cox, and IFC Asia Pacific Vice President Karin Finkelston.
