Dear sirs/Madams I am glad that Organization like world banks is giving such a great opportunity to share our thoughts on such a bigger platform.I am studying Chartered Accountancy course and posses a firm determination in binging change in Rural financial sector which at present time is in distress.It is a well known fact that we are now recovering out of the global financial crisis but still there such sectors which needs more attention.In this context only I wanted to know "What are the steps we could enforce to increase the GDP of the rural areas. Banking and other financial services are also not in reach of the people leaving in these areas.There are Banks and other small microfinance institutions but they provide costly credit lines which at the end becomes extra burden on the borrower.I think only providing them funds will not solve the issue rather these financial institution should also help them in improving the technical knowledge and participate in their Projects as it will not only empower the borrower but also ensures the proper repayment of the loans.I also think that there is a need of Funds like Venture capitalist and other strategic partners focusing on rural areas . Lack of skilled manpower and Infrastructure can Be the possible cause why this area of the country is neglected but what is the point in focusing Internet Companies when only 2% of the population can actually know and understand this.I am in very much support of opening such instution which not only provide funds to the SMEs in rural areas but also equip them with teams. I want to know what is the view of the world bank on this issue? Regards samrendra

Hi, I am a doctor from Chennai, India. I'm planning to do Masters in Public Health this year. My dream is to work with International Health Organizations like World Bank, WHO, etc. I want to know the scope of public health careers in the world bank and what all they expect from candidates like me. For example, does an additional MBA degree add value to the job placements. Secondly, I have been offered admission for MPH course in top US universities like UNC (ranked No. 2), Emory, Minnesota, Pittsburgh and Washington University in St. Louis. I have also been admitted in Indian Institute of Health Management & Research (IIHMR), Jaipur, India which is in collaboration with Johns Hopkins (ranked No. 1 among Schools of Public Health). Since the course fees and duration (only 1 yr) is less in IIHMR and degree is offered by Johns Hopkins, I have decided to attend their course rejecting the US on campus programs. Will this decision affect my career prospectives badly? Kindly excuse me, if my questions are irrelevant and thanks for the opportunity.

How is this program capable of reducing unemployment among graduates to the minimum level since unemployment has become a global problem government leaders are battling with. Secondly, is this program going to shape the youth to become professional entrepreneurs since start up capital is the major problem? Lastly, is the world bank going to support the youth who want to become entrepreneurs with any form of capital or skill training? Thanks!

Hi, Thank you for giving everyone the opportunity to be a part of you and make a change. YPP does not recruit individuals specialized in certain disciplines such as law. Though YPP is designed for individuals skilled in areas such as natural resource management. Can someone qualify for YPP if their first degree was in law and went further to obtain a masters in oil and gas law? The masters is relevant to natural resource management in so far as the regulatory bit is concerned. Looking forward to hearing from you.

I was born in July 81, would I be precluded from applying? I have a background in Law and publications on stabilization clauses in oil and gas contracts; on access to medicines in developing countries; on arbitration and international trusts. The experience at WB would be an opportunity to gain experience and to build an excellent CV. Thanks for consideration.

Does the YPP selection process have a quota system for nationality/region and/or specialty, and if yes, do you announce these vacancies? What longer-term career plans have previous YPPs had when applying for the program, and what do their careers look like 10, 20 years after the completion of the program (in other words, how does the YPP serve in the long run)?
