WASHINGTON, DC [HI-RES]
Saturday, April 22, 2006 - IMF/World Bank Spring Meetings.

“The emerging diversity of economic performance in Africa is striking. As in other regions, some African countries are doing quite well, while others lag behind...This gives us hope that for more than a dozen countries in Africa reaching the Millennium Development Goals is within their grasp, but for many others the prospects of reaching the goals remain very dim”

---John Page, Chief Economist, World Bank, Sub-Saharan Africa region.
