Ajay Banga poised to become World Bank chief unopposed

Washington DC, 30/3 Indian-American business leader Ajay Banga is poised to become the next President of the World Bank after the nomination period closed and no country proposed an alternate candidate for the prestigious post.



In February, President Joe Biden announced that the US would be nominating Banga to lead the World Bank because he is “well equipped” to lead the global institution at “this critical moment in history.”


The World Bank on Wednesday closed a month-long window for nominations for its next president, with no alternatives announced to 63-year-old Banga.


The former Mastercard Inc. chief, Banga currently serves as Vice Chairman at General Atlantic.
