WB unanimously reappoints president Kim
World Bank

AFP, WASHINGTON: The board of the World Bank has unanimously agreed to name Jim Yong Kim to a second term as president, the global lender announced yesterday.
Kim had been the only candidate in a process criticized by World Bank staff and campaigners as lacking in transparency and dominated by the United States. In a statement announcing the decision, the Bank’s board offered a strong endorsement of Kim’s record, including setting the goal of eliminating extreme global poverty by 2030 and an internal reorganization to promote better coordination which provoked staff dissent.
The board also said an effort under Kim to cut bank spending had reduced administrative costs by $400 million, money then reinvested to support the bank’s goals.
