Describing the meeting very fruitful, Modi said, “We discussed several ways of working together in the time to come.”

“Rather than dollars, we are more interested in knowledge and expertise of World Bank. Dr Kim agreed and said World Bank can be our information bank. We want ideas from the World Bank not only on mass production but also on production by masses, which will benefit our workforce,” Modi tweeted.

“We talked about the importance of scale and the need to work on a scale that inspires people and positively transforms their lives. We live in a world where speed matters. Quick execution is essential. Speeding up World Bank projects will surely increase the impact,” he added.

Asserting on the need to enhance human skills, Modi said, “Today the world focuses on trade but in future the core issue will be how to get skilled people. We need to work in this direction.”

Meanwhile, Modi also pitched for rejuvenation on holy river Ganges. “I also suggested to Jim Yong Kim that the Ganga cleansing would be a very inspiring project for the World Bank,” he said.
