Arab Today, arab today Japan to support US nominee for World Bank

Tokyo - QNA

Japan will support Jim Yong Kim, the US nominee for the next World Bank head, Japanese Finance Minister Jun Azumi said Sunday. The announcement came after the Japanese minister held talks with the US candidate, who is in Tokyo on his world tour to seek support for the candidacy. Kim, a Korean-American, will be contesting against two nominees from emerging market countries - Nigerian finance minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and former Colombian finance minister Jose Antonio Ocampo - for the Washington-based institution\'s top job. \"We decided he is an extremely suitable candidate for the World Bank presidency and we will support him,\" Azumi said, stressing his track record working on HIV/AIDs issues with the World Health Organisation. Azumi said that the right candidate for the job would understand Japan\'s stance as a major contributor country and would be able reflect that in the World Bank\'s policies. Kim, a physician and anthropologist, was named by the Obama administration in March as the US pick to succeed Robert Zoellick when he steps down in June. By tradition, an American has headed the World Bank since its founding after World War Two, but emerging economies are increasingly open about challenging that convention. Next on the agenda of Kim\'s \"listening tour\" as the US Treasury Department calls the trip, is Seoul, New Delhi, Brasilia and Mexico City. He is touring the world between March 27 and April 9 to meet heads of state, finance ministers and others to talk about priorities for the World Bank. The candidate is the president of Ivy League university Dartmouth College, was born in South Korea, but moved to the United States as a boy
