Senior fellow Liliana Rojas-Suarez is quoted in this article about Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's decision to remove his country from partnerships with the World Bank and IMF.
From the article:
Liliana Rojas-Suarez, a former IMF official now with the Washington-based Center for Global Development think tank, said Chavez's move is consistent with his vision of creating a system independent of US influence.
"This is definitely political and consistent with Chavez's strategy," she said, pointing out that Mr Chavez is founding a new Bank for the South, which would play a role similar to the World Bank but under Latin American control.
