Opening remarks by James D. Wolfensohn, President of the World Bank Group, at the Annual Bank Conference on Development Economics (ABCDE) (English)

The speech includes the discussion regarding economic growth. The overriding objective of this response is the alleviation of poverty and the acceleration of social progress. But this objective is simply unattainable in developing nations where the securing of sustained economic growth remains but an illusion. And so it is imperative that The World Bank do all it can to help our developing member countries secure that economic growth through a process of growth-oriented adjustment.
