BEIJING, March 12 (Xinhua) -- China's central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan said Monday that not much attention should be paid to the selection of the new chief of the World Bank.
Zhou made the remarks when commenting on questions whether he will be nominated for the position at a press conference on the sidelines of the country's annual parliamentary session.
Considering the bank's history and that World Bank chiefs have always been Americans, people should not be too concerned over the issue, as there has not yet been a change in the range of choices for the new chief, said Zhou.
The Washington-based World Bank Group will pick a new chief in April this year to replace the outgoing President Robert Zoellick.
