New World Bank Group president, Ajay Banga, will visit Peru and Jamaica next week, kicking off a months-long global tour aimed at accelerating the global lender’s evolution to tackle the climate crisis and reinvigorate its development mission.
Banga, a former Mastercard CEO, took over the job today.
The bank says he will visit countries in every region where the World Bank operates through December 2023.
Banga is tasked with identifying barriers to private-sector investment, finding opportunities to maximize the bank’s impact, and deepening ties between the institution and the countries it serves.
Banga will also work to reimagine strategic partnerships with other multilateral lenders and development organizations.
He will be joined on the Peru and Jamaica leg by Inter-American Development Bank President Ilan Golfajn.
