The Chinese Executive Director Zhu Xian said in a carefully-worded press release issued by the Bank today: "China accepts no conditions beyond management's original recommendations that had been agreed between management and my authorities ...authorities that other Bank shareholders would insist on imposing additional conditions on management's recommendations - namely coming back to the Board for approval again for a project that was already approved last year ...that because of political opposition from some shareholders the World Bank has lost a good opportunity to assist some of the poorest people in China, probably in the world, after so much effort by World Bank management and staff."
Chinese Executive Director Zhu Xian confirmed that China would be carrying out the project itself with its own resources, which could have a dramatic impact on the indigenous Tibetan and Mongolian population of the project area and beyond.The Chinese Executive Director's statement that China will carry out implementation of the project "in its own way" suggests that resettlement may be carried out at a greater scale than envisaged in the World Bank proposal before the Board.The number of settlers had already been reduced from 100,000 to less than 60,000 after the Bank's involvement in design of the project.The proposed in-migration to Dulan (Tulan in Tibetan) county in Haixi (Tibet: Tsonub) Mongolian and Tibetan Autonomous prefecture, Qinghai, would already more than double the county's population; the Tibetan and Mongolian population of the county could now be diluted still further by the Chinese authorities.The proposed new towns will each have populations five times as large as Xiangride, the nearest established town to the main irrigation site, which will lead to further development and possibly a further influx of settlers into the region.China's World Bank Executive Director Zhu Xian also stated that by its actions the Bank's "development effectiveness" had been "jeopardised".
