Kim says it is not clear how fast automation will cut jobs.

Asked about the Trump administration's skepticism about climate change at a news conference, Kim said the World Bank would continue to work with governments and the private sector to boost financing for alternative energy, especially in China, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Pakistan and Vietnam.

"That's what we're seeing all over the world", he said. "So now solar is quite competitive with coal", Kim told reporters. "I mean the Green Climate Fund is still right around 7.5 billion after two or three years".

While the USA appears poised to roll back federal carbon emissions regulations, Kim highlighted efforts the bank is involved with in six other countries that contribute significant coal-based carbon to the atmosphere - China, India, the Philippines, Indonesia, Pakistan and Vietnam. "The bottom line is this, that the science of climate change didn't change with any particular election".

Referring to what has happened in the world in terms of eradicating poverty, he said China has had the strongest experience as 800 million people have been lifted out of penury.

"I think there is a lot of attention, and that s good". "The 0.7 that has been committed to is critically, critically important, not just for developing countries but for the future of the world".

"If those rising aspirations then meet frustration, we are very, very anxious about more and more countries going down the path of fragility", Kim said.

"People have to think about aid as far more than giveaways". So we need to find ways of accelerating that process.

He considered China's Belt and Road initiative as "unprecedented".

According to Kim, the World Bank is cooperating well with Chinese government and China-initiated Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) on development. "We'll be signing another memorandum of understanding during these meetings", Kim reported. "I'm told that storage technology is getting better very quickly, and that within a few years, we may have some major transformations in the ability to store energy from intermittent sources".

Kim also noted that the Chinese are "very much in agreement" with the World Bank's plans to use its resources to crowd in more private sector capital to development projects.
