Bolivia: Bolivia - China's entry into IDB "very important"

Bolivia on Saturday hailed China's entry to the Inter American Development Bank (IDB), describing it as "very important".

China's entry to the IDB "widened its ties with other regions in the world," Noel Aguirre, Bolivian Planning and Development Minister, who is taking part in the group's annual meeting in Colombia city of Medellin, told Xinhua.

"We want to invite China to join the Latin American peoples in these moments of the global economic crisis," he added.

China joined the IDB in January this year, becoming the 48th member country of the group.

Zhou Xiaochuan, China's central bank governor, is attending the ongoing meeting in Medellin as Chinese representative.
