    Yes, he’s the guy that swam across the strait, quite a story
    On a side note, will the appointment of more Chinese citizens into the IMF and World Bank change the way these organizations operate?

    LOL. Not really across the strait but from Jinmen to Xiamen. Swiming across the Taiwan strait would be really tough. However, he is very courageous, because if caught he faced certain death.

    Well, the apointment of Chinese deputy chiefs at World Bank and IMF is due to the rise of the economical power of China. The US still has the largest voting right and veto power at both organizations though.
