World Bank chief nominee in Seoul


Jim Yong Kim, center, who has been nominated as the head of the World Bank, arrived in Seoul yesterday via Incheon International Airport. He flew in on a Korean Air flight traveling from Narita Airport in Japan. Although he was surrounded by a large group of journalists, Kim, wearing the same necktie that he wore when named by the White House recently, simply said “thank you” in Korean and quickly moved on.

Kim will be meeting Korea’s Finance Minister Bahk Jae-wan earlier today to discuss World Bank policy and later meet President Lee Myung-bak at the Blue House. Kim is currently on a tour of seven countries including Ethiopia, Brazil, Mexico, China, Japan and India. [NEWSIS]
