The world economy is becoming more integrated and the developing countries are becoming more important to the U.S. Trade, finance and technology are integral aspects of globalization. However, there are challenges and risks associated with globalization as well and they need to be managed.

He will discuss American interests in promoting development as well as the role of the World Bank in this "Age of Globalization".
