World Bank President Robert Zoellick announced on Wednesday that he will kick off his first official trip as the leader of the international financial agency to Asia-Pacific nations.

The trip, which will bring him to Australia, Cambodia, Vietnam and Japan late this month, was an opportunity for him to continue dialogues with stakeholders, said Zoellick.

During the trip, he will hold talks with these countries' finance ministers and in Australia he will take part in the APEC discussions on promoting more inclusive globalization, climate change and energy security and South-South cooperation.

"Ten years after the East Asian financial crisis, the region has become an important source of growth and dynamism," said the World Bank chief.

"I look forward to exchanging views with APEC partners on future challenges, which include meeting the dual goals of sustaining growth and overcoming poverty, while increasing energy efficiency and environmental protection in a region where demand is growing rapidly," he said.
