World Bank President Jim Yong Kim announced he would be stepping down on Monday after six years in the position.
During his tenure, the institution set goals of ending extreme poverty by 2030 and boosting shared prosperity, which continue to guide the institution and its work around the world.
Throughout his term, Kim emphasized that one of the largest unmet needs in the developing word is... Еще investments into infrastructure. For this reason, he will be immediately rejoining a firm in the private sector that is focused on investing into infrastructure projects in developing countries.
Kim will leave office on February 1, three and a half years before his term was due to end.
World Bank CEO Kristalina Georgieva will assume the role of interim President after Kim’s departure.
