World Bank President Robert Zoellick on Wednesday unveiled six strategic themes he said would focus the work of the world's largest poverty-fighting institution on tackling poverty in the poorest countries and also in emerging economies like China.

In a speech that marked his first 100 days at the World Bank, Zoellick said the World Bank had a role in advancing "an inclusive and sustainable globalization" by helping developing countries adjust to more open economies and making sure the poor were not excluded.
