World Bank president Ajay Banga in TIME’s 100 most influential people list



Bank president Ajay Banga is among the Indians who have made it to the prestigious Times's list of 100 most influential people in the world released on Wednesday.

Time's profile of the former Mastercard CEO, written by US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, said, “It's not easy to find a leader with the skill and drive to take on the monumental task of transforming an essential institution, but since becoming World Bank president last June, Ajay Banga has done just that.”

She said Banga comes to the World Bank after leading a global organisation through which he brought millions of unbanked people into the digital . At the World Bank, he set forth a new vision to create a world free of poverty on a livable planet and moved boldly to make good on it — from pioneering innovative financial tools to reimagining partnerships across the multilateral development banks and with the private sector.
