First Funding for Cyprus

ABSTRACT*Http://Www.Worldbank.Org/Projects/P008337/Power-Project?Lang=En&Tab=Overview
 

The Power Project for Cyprus will help finance additions to its power system consisting of a new 60 MW steam power station at Moni and extensions and reinforcements of the transmission and distribution systems, including connections to about 200 villages which now do not have a supply of electricity. The project consists of: (a) the construction of a new 60 IMW steam power station at Moni, (b) the extension of the existing 66 KV transmission system, (c) the extension and reinforcement of the existing distribution system. The project forms an important part of the Government’s Five-Year Program of Economic Development and it is in fact one of the few parts of the Program for which planning is reasonably complete. Additional electricity supply is clearly necessary to maintain a sound economic growth in Cyprus.

Norwegian Delegation,
Bretton Woods,
July 1944

Conceived during World War II at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, the World Bank initially helped rebuild Europe after the war. Its first loan of $250 million was to France in 1947 for post-war reconstruction. Reconstruction has remained an important focus of the Bank’s work, given the natural disasters, humanitarian emergencies, and post­conflict rehabilitation needs that affect developing and transition economies.Today’s Bank, however, has sharpened its focus on poverty reduction as the overarching goal of all its work. It once had a homogeneous staff of engineers and financial analysts, based solely in Washington, D.C. Today, it has a multidisciplinary and diverse staff including economists, public policy experts, sectoral experts, and social scientists. 40 percent of staff are now based in country offices.
The Bank itself is bigger, broader, and far more complex. It has become a Group, encompassing five closely associated development institutions: the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), the International Development Association (IDA), theInternational Finance Corporation (IFC), the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA), and the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID).

 
US Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Morganthau, Bretton Woods, July 1944

Transition During the 1980s, the Bank was pushed in many directions: early in the decade, the Bank was brought face to face with macroeconomic and debt rescheduling issues; later in the decade, social and environmental issues assumed center stage, and an increasingly vocal civil society accused the Bank of not observing its own policies in some high­profile projects.
To address concerns about the quality of Bank operations, the Wapenhans Report was released and soon after, steps toward reform were taken, including the creation of an Inspection Panel to investigate claims against the Bank. However, criticism increased, reaching a peak in 1994 at the Annual Meetings in Madrid.
Reform and Renewal

Mother and daughter, China, 1993

Since then, the Bank Group has made much progress. All five institutions have been working – separately and in collaboration – to improve internal efficiency and external effectiveness. Clients report to be broadly pleased with the changes they see in Bank Group service levels, commitment, deliveries, and quality.More than ever before, the Bank is playing an important role in the global policy arena. It has effectively engaged with partners and clients in complex emergencies from post-conflict work in Bosnia to post-crisis assistance in East Asia to post-hurricane clean-up in central America to post-earthquake support in Turkey and in Kosovo and East Timor.
Notwithstanding these considerable progress, the Bank Group’s agenda is not yet complete, nor can it ever be, while the challenges of development continue to grow.

Further, assurance has been given to Mr. Kaissouni that the Governments of the United States and the United Kingdom would, subject to legislative authority, be prepared to consider sympathetically in the light of then existing circumstances further support toward financing the later stages to supplement World Bank financing.” (U.S. Department of State Press Release)

December 19, 1959—President Black announces that three influential bankers will visit India and Pakistan to study the economic conditions and to acquaint themselves with the current and planned development programs in the two countries. President Eugene Black was convinced of the need for wider understanding in the industrially developed countries of the problems confronting the less developed areas of the world, and believed that visits by prominent members of the business and financial communities of the industrial countries could make an important contribution to that end. Sir Oliver Franks of Lloyds Bank, Dr. Hermann Abs of Deutsche Bank, and Mr. Joseph M. Dodge of the Detroit Bank and Trust Company agreed, at the Bank’s instigation, to undertake the visit. The “Three Wise Men” began their visit in January 1964, and issued their report in the form of a letter to President Eugene Black.

The report was focused primarily on highly indebted middle-income countries.
December 18, 1990—President Barber Conable issues a statement on the GATT negotiations. “I welcome recent moves to revive the GATT negotiations on trade liberalization. Many developing countries, already struggling with debt burdens, environmental crises and chronic poverty, have made difficult political and economic choices in their efforts to liberalize their trade regimes. Recognizing the potential gains from more open economies, they have demonstrated an increasing commitment to trade liberalization. It is a cruel irony that the industrial countries which dominate world trade have, so far, lacked the political will to conclude the negotiations positively…The trend toward protectionism will increase international tension and diminish prospects for world economic growth. I urge all GATT participants to reach agreement swiftly and decisively. Too much is at stake for the Uruguay Round to be allowed to end inconclusively.”

December 15, 1992—President Lewis Preston addresses the World Resources Institute in Washington, saying that poverty is at the root of the world’s environmental and development problems. He reaffirmed the Bank’s focus on sustainable development, and pledged to follow up on promises made at the June 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro.December 15, 1993—President Preston congratulates participants on the completion of the Uruguay Round of the GATT trade negotiations, saying that the completion of the negotiations will help developing nations reduce poverty, and will encourage the business community.

IBRD Articles of Agreement

ICSID is an autonomous international institution established under the Convention on the Settlement of Investment Disputes between States and Nationals of Other States (the ICSID or the Washington Convention) with over one hundred and forty member States. The Convention sets forth ICSID’s mandate, organization and core functions. The primary purpose of ICSID is to provide facilities for conciliation and arbitration of international investment disputes.  The ICSID Convention is a multilateral treaty formulated by the Executive Directors of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the World Bank). It was opened for signature on March 18, 1965 and entered into force on October 14, 1966.  The Convention sought to remove major impediments to the free international flows of private investment posed by non-commercial risks and the absence of specialized international methods for investment dispute settlement. ICSID was created by the Convention as an impartial international forum providing facilities for the resolution of legal disputes between eligible parties, through conciliation or arbitration procedures. Recourse to the ICSID facilities is always subject to the parties’ consent.  As evidenced by its large membership, considerable caseload, and by the numerous references to its arbitration facilities in investment treaties and laws, ICSID plays an important role in the field of international investment and economic development.  Today, ICSID is considered to be the leading international arbitration institution devoted to investor-State dispute settlement.

This database provides information relating to: signatures, ratifications and entry into force of the ICSID Convention; measures taken by ICSID Contracting States for the purpose of implementation and application of the Convention; and designations made to the ICSID Panels of Conciliators and of Arbitrators.
