WB chief hails preparations for Dubai 2003

World Bank President James Wolfensohn yesterday praised the organisation and arrangements made by the UAE for hosting the WB-IMF meetings as 'remarkable'. 'I think that these facilities are quite remarkable. I think the time in which they were done, the care and attention has been superb, and it augers well for a very good set of meetings that we very much look forward to being part of,' Wolfensohn said.



This year, of course, he added, is a very special year for us because we're meeting for the very first time in the Middle East. This was a decision that was taken in 1999, and I have to say right at the outset how privileged we feel to be here and what an extraordinary job the authorities in Dubai have done, he told reporters today. 'I think the special reason that we are keen to have the meetings here this year is that, although there is a huge interest in the region because of crises, because of the Iraq situation, because of Gaza and West Bank, because of various other actions that have brought the headlines, our purpose in being here is additional.
