From , 6:03 am on 25 November 2016

The new Pacific director for the World Bank says there are massive gains to be made in the Pacific if countries can get things right.

Michel Kerf will oversee the World Bank's regional portfolio which includes 55 projects across 13 countries worth more than $US1billion.

Mr Kerf told Koroi Hawkins the Bank has identified potential areas which countries could focus on improving and developing and two major risk areas which need to be mitigated to maximise gains across the region.
