Envoy Sees WB-China Cooperation as a Global Benchmark

Xinhua, February 12, 2010 Adjust font size:

The cooperation between the World Bank and China was an example for the agency's relations with other countries, the newly appointed World Bank envoy to China said on Wednesday.

Chinese Ambassador to Russia Li Hui on Wednesday met with Klaus Roland, former World Bank country director and resident representative in Russia who will take the post in Beijing.

Li congratulated Roland on his new mission and said the Chinese government would provide him with all necessary assistance in his job.

Roland said the World Bank had established a cooperative relationship with China for three decades, and such cooperation served as a benchmark for others.

The World Bank and China would celebrate the 30th anniversary of their cooperative relationship this summer in Beijing, Roland said.

The past 30 years, which saw increasingly close cooperation between China and the World Bank, coincided with China's reform and opening up endeavor, said the Chinese ambassador, who expressed gratitude to the World Bank for its contribution to China's economic development.

Both sides also agreed to further boost cooperation potential and deepen cooperation in various fields.
