The heat was oppressive. But as the long thin Chinese rowing boats sliced through the water, the crowd along the riverbank burst into life, cheering and waving and urging the teams on.

The Chinese festival of dragon boat racing stretches back thousands of years. Hong Kong loves it, partly because of a pride of a Chinese tradition and partly because it's a great day out.

I think the people in Gaza have been disappointed up to now. You will remember that at one point, 18 months ago, there was amount production of flowers and fruits in Gaza, and opening of the borders with Israel, and airport, the seaport, the linkage with Egypt, the linkage between Gaza and West Bank. And I think many Palestinians do look to the inability to carry through their promise as being a very bad mark against the western contributors. And so I think that there is a lot of apprehension there, I am not sure there is a great deal of trust. And I think what you got when they came in with Hamas, was they were turning away from Fatah, because they could not deliver and they were trying someone else and I think it is an uncertain question that people would immediately turn back to Fatah as a result of this.

As a financial man yourself, you must be aware of the logistic difficulties of funneling money, not only to the West Bank, but particularly to Gaza, humanitarian aid that Israel says it wants to see delivered. On a wider note, on a global scale, how are institutions fixed, logistically, to deliver all the aid that is so much talked about in this era of globalization?

Well, I think it’s, you’re hitting on a very very difficult question, because if you take just that same amount of aid, which is given globally to developing countries, the poor countries, you can say that’s roughly 100 billion dollars. By my estimates, which are drawn from my colleague’s estimates, you would be lucky if a quarter of that in cash gets to the recipients. There are overlayers of advisers, and intermediaries, and in the case of, of Gaza, and the West Bank, I think it is not the similar.

On a wider scale, it’s a huge problem. The growing gap between rich and poor. And do you think that institutions, I think you’ve spoken that institutions themselves need to be overhauled, such as World Bank, for example.

Well, I think, I think that very roughly you’ve got six billion or so people in the planet; you have a billion people who are relatively well-off. And you’ve got five billion people that are in varying degrees of development. In forty, fifty years’ time, it will be 9 billion people. And people in the rich group of a billion might be a billion one. All the rest will go to the developing countries. And we have a tremendous challenge in the world that to be able to make a transition from a world which we previously understood that 80, 90 percent of the world should be with the rich, with the Europeans, with the Americans, even with the Australians. And I now understand that with China and India coming along, you have global superpowers that are being created in the next 30 or 40 years. And behind that you still have a billion or so people who will have nothing. They will be living under a dollar a day. And the challenge for all of us is what do you do with the people in group three and four in the world, the people that are not growing much, and people that are literally going backwards?
