"There has been an impact (of Brexit). And the impact is very clear because uncertainty is something that the markets don't like. So, for developing countries, one of the impacts that we have seen is that money has moved to safe havens. Gold, US Treasuries, Japanese Yen, even despite low, you know, negative interest rates. German bonds at negative interest rates. What that means for developing countries is that access to capital can become really difficult. Now, again, India has been very resilient to what's been happening in Brexit. If there is continued uncertainty, if there are more events that create more uncertainty, then certainly everyone will be affected, including India."

"I am a very strong believer in multilateralism and the European Union was… is one of the greatest examples of an attempt at multilateralism. I believe in it. I believe that the key to peace and prosperity, especially shared prosperity for all, lies in strengthening multilateralism, not moving away from it. That's my very strong belief as president of the World Bank Group. And so what I hope, is that the European Union will come out of this stronger."

The World Bank on Thursday signed an agreement with the Indian-led International Solar Alliance to boost solar energy in developing countries by mobilising 1 trillion US dollars in investments by 2030.
The agreement, signed by World Bank president Jim Yong Kim and Indian Power Minister Piyush Goyal, established the World Bank as a financial partner of the alliance.
The alliance was launched by India and France at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris last November and includes about 120 countries that support the promotion of solar energy.
In addition, it plans to provide more than 1 billion US dollars to support India's initiatives to expand solar power generation through projects including solar rooftop technology, infrastructure for solar parks and transmission lines for solar-rich states.
The World Bank and the Indian government on Thursday also signed an agreement for a 625 million US dollar loan to finance the installation of at least 400 megawatt of solar panels.
During his visit, Kim also spoke about Britain's decision to leave the European Union, saying the Brexit had made it difficult for developing countries like India to access capital and that money was flowing instead into safe havens like gold and US treasuries.
