Statement from World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim on Women’s Economic Empowerment

Statement from World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim:

wcw21“Policy leaders, executives, economists, and academics all agree that one of the most powerful ways to grow the global economy is to expand the role of women in business. The World Bank Group is working with partners on the details around creating a facility for women’s economic empowerment, specifically through providing access to finance, markets, and networks. Typically, the governance of facilities we manage is decided among donors, and the secretariat sits within and is administered by the World Bank Group. We are very grateful for the leadership Ms. Trump and Chancellor Merkel have demonstrated on this important issue.”
