Sofana Dahlan
This World Bank fund is very important because it cuts through the politics and diplomacy. A lot of countries do refrain from helping Saudi women, because they don't want to be politically incorrect.feedback

Priti Patel

And I'm a no-bullshit person when it comes to calling out finance ministers or the World Bank. I think we shouldn't hesitate to slap the IMF and shake the tree of the World Bank when we are stepping up. I don't take no for an answer.feedback

Yosef Abramowitz

What we're actually doing is create a new asset class. These are cash producing assets that have an insurance wrap from the World Bank or the U.S. government and that are actually very valuable, if you know how to do it and if you do it with integrity. So we anticipate that our investors will do well.feedback

Matthew Rycroft

This is the start of a process. We're clear that organisations like the UN and World Bank have a central role to play in helping address global challenges like disasters, conflict and disease.feedback

Diane Gross

We have events we do here for elected officials, nonprofits, foreign dignitaries, the World Bank, law firms. Those folks are now being courted to come and want to go there because they see it as advantageous to them to curry favor with the president. We do lose bookings sometimes and nobody ever gives you a reason. They don't say, We're going to the Trump hotel instead of coming here.' We do know that business has been a little slower with the inauguration of this president.feedback

Albert Edwards

A lot of what he says on the economic front makes perfect sense to me. US corporate competitiveness is poor and deteriorating. The World Bank, for example, ranks the US a derisory 51st on how easy it is to start a business. The only things where the US excels are the ability of companies to get credit and resolving insolvency. So US companies excel at leveraging up and going bust - great!feedback

Javed Noorani

I feel pity if they allow it. The World Bank , in collaboration with the Afghan government, tried to remove the heritage [site] to safety, but this act in itself is a breach of international standards and laws on archaeology. People are worried because they have been displaced without being consulted or their consent sought.feedback

Nezir Sinani

The World Bank has pledged to help countries adopt a low-carbon development path, specifically by phasing out fossil fuel subsidies and promoting a carbon tax. However, the bank's policy lending does the opposite, by introducing tax breaks for coal power plants and coal export infrastructure.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

I started my career working at the World Bank on health care in India. I saw firsthand how clinics funded by foreign aid are often the only source of health care for women. When women are given even the most basic health care information and services, they live longer, healthier lives - and they give birth to children who live longer, healthier lives. Comprehensive family planning helps prevent unintended pregnancies, deaths and abortions.feedback

Philip Mpango

The World Bank has agreed to give Tanzania loans for various development projects, including a credit of $305 million for an expansion project at the Dar es Salaam port.feedback

Oleksandr Danyliuk

I welcome today's decision of the Board of the World Bank to provide guarantees for a Naftogaz loan of $500 million for the purchase of gas. This will allow us to safely get through the heating season.feedback

Minouche Shafik - Bank of England

I have just got back from the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. I've been going to these meetings for 20 years, and this last meeting I went to is the one in which politics and geopolitics was discussed more than ever.feedback

Aly-Khan Satchu

The sooner they do (IMF talks) the better. They have talked to the World Bank, all the sovereign wealth funds but nobody is interested.feedback

Hans Joerg Schelling

They earn less money and to be resistant against shocks you have to make more profit, and that's a common opinion from the International Monetary Fund, from the World Bank, from the OECD, from everybody.feedback

Suma Chakrabarti

We have been talking to the government about how to make sure such decisions are taken properly and maybe in this case to actually, we think, re-think this decision because it would affect investors like us and the World bank and others as well.feedback

Jin Liqun - Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank

The Canadians' decision to join this bank will greatly strengthen the management of this institution. We can see that the U.S.'s attitude towards AIIB is showing signs of changing, as it's encouraging the World Bank to cooperate more with the AIIB.feedback

Jim Yong Kim - World Bank Group

The thing that's really important about Paul's contribution for the World Bank Group is that he developed this endogenous theory of growth and the notion is that you really have got to invest internally including in your people, skills and education to really come up with some of the technological innovations that will drive growth.feedback

Jim Yong Kim - World Bank Group

India's plans to virtually triple the share of renewable energy by 2030 will both transform the country's energy supply and have far-reaching global implications in the fight against climate change. The World Bank Group will do all it can to help India meet its ambitious targets, especially around scaling up solar energy.feedback

Michael Hewson - CMC Markets

It still seems unlikely that the Fed would move in June, firstly because there may not be enough positive data available to act with confidence, and secondly because to do so would suggest that the U.S. central bank doesn't really consider the U.K. referendum a significant enough tail risk, despite all the siren calls to the contrary, from bodies like the IMF, OECD, World Bank, not to mention President Obama.feedback

Zaur Rzayev - World Bank Group

The World Bank and the IMF are in active dialogue with the government of Azerbaijan, discussing both immediate and longer-term measures in response to the pressure on the local currency and low oil prices. The World Bank stands ready to provide necessary assistance to Azerbaijan, including budget support.feedback

Baikuntha Aryal

The AIIB is specifically for infrastructure so we see it as a supplement to projects in Nepal funded by the ADB (Asian Development Bank) and World Bank.feedback

David Hufton

If the first week is anything to go by we are in for a long, volatile and very exhausting year. The week started on a bad note and ended on a good one but the market response, worryingly, was the same to both – sell, sell, sell. China has torpedoed the hopes of the optimists. The third leg of the financial crises involving emerging markets that the IMF, World Bank, BIS and various messengers of doom had warned of has come into play.feedback

Tony Snow

The fact is that he made mistakes, they are not, in our view, firing offences. Separately, at some point in the future, there are going to be conversations about the proper stewardship of the World Bank. And, Mr. Wolfowitz himself, says that what you need to have is a full, fair conversation about what is going to be best for the future of the bank. In that sense, all options are on the table.feedback

Nigel Farage

Why on earth would you listen to the World Bank, or any other global organisation like that? They generally get absolutely everything wrong.feedback

Mikhail Pohrebinsky

For us it is very important to continue cooperation with the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. We badly need investment and in order to gain more legitimacy and improve his reputation with Europe, Yanukovych will not clearly steer a course towards Russia.feedback

Daniel Gros - Centre for European Policy Studies

The only thing that could be done would be to recast the governance of the IMF, the World Bank and the other international financial institutions. But here the solution is very simple, everybody knows it. We need to have a Euro area seat at the IMF with a much smaller share and a much larger share for China.feedback

Stefan Grobe - Euronews

Christine Lagarde sounded less pessimistic in her assessment of Europe than other observers, like the World Bank. She praised the Europeans for producing results, unlike other regions. She may have been thinking of the United States.feedback

Roza Otunbayeva

The EU is Kyrgyzstan's biggest donor after the World Bank. So during our meetings with EU heads, we spoke about financial circumstances, our serious budget deficit, the issues associated with an expanding democracy and honing our parliamentary system. We need to strengthen it, to reinvent our judicial system and train young journalists. These are the range of issues discussed in Brussels.feedback

Salam Fayyad

This has been confirmed by reports from international institutions, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations. Those reports examined our institutions and the Palestinian National Authority and assessed their ability to provide services in different areas to reach the main goal.feedback

Francesco Bandarin - UNESCO

The site of Axum is at the heart of many projects. UNESCO collaborates with other organisations such as the world bank to make this possible – with all the importance it already has and the notoriety that this operation will bring, it's one of the major sites in Africa, he said.feedback

Traian Basescu

Elections must be held,'' Croitoru said. It's also important that we continue our financial relations with the world bank, the IMF, the EU and financial institutions.feedback
