World Bank Group (WBG) President Jim Yong Kim unexpectedly announced on Monday that he will be stepping down from his position on Feb 1, more than three years before his second term ends in 2022.

世界银行集团行长金墉周一突然宣布,他将于2月1日卸任,此时距他2022年第二任期期满还有3年多的时间。
"Serving as president of WBG has been a great privilege," Kim said. "The work of the WBG is more important now than ever as the aspirations of the poor rise all over the world, and problems like climate change, pandemics, famine and refugees continue to grow in both their scale and complexity."
金墉表示:“能够担任世界银行集团行长是我的莫大荣幸。随着全球贫困人口的诉求提高,气候变化、流行性疾病、饥荒、难民等问题的规模和复杂性持续增长,如今世界银行的工作比以往任何时候都更加重要。”
Kim told World Bank employees in an email that he was leaving the world's largest lender to join a private-sector firm focused on infrastructure investments in the developing world.
金墉通过电子邮件告诉世界银行集团的员工,他离开这家全球最大借贷机构后,会加入一家专注于发展中国家基础设施投资的民营企业。

"The opportunity to join the private sector was unexpected, but I've concluded that this is the path through which I will be able to make the largest impact on major global issues like climate change and the infrastructure deficit in emerging markets," Kim said.

他表示,加入这家民营企业的机会来的出乎意料,但他认为这是自己能对气候变迁与新兴市场基础设施短缺等重大全球议题产生最大影响力的途径。
Kim first became the 12th president of the WBG on July 1, 2012. He was appointed to a second five-year term as president of the multilateral development bank in 2016.
2012年7月1日,金墉成为世界银行第12任行长。2016年,他开始了作为这一多边开发银行行长的第二个五年的任期。
Kristalina Georgieva, who in 2017 became the World Bank's chief executive officer, will assume the role of interim president when Kim departs.
金墉离任后,自2017年起担任世界银行首席执行官的克里斯塔利娜·格奥尔基耶娃将担任世界银行临时行长。
Georgieva, a Bulgarian national, had previously held senior European Union posts after serving 15 years at the World Bank, starting as an environmental economist in 1993.
1993年进入世界银行担任环境经济学家,在世界银行任职15年后,出任过欧盟高级职位。
