Former World Bank President Jim Yong Kim will deliver the 2023 Kofi Annan Eminent Speakers’ Lecture at an online event organised by the African Development Bank Group’s African Development Institute (ADI).

 

The session, titled The Changing Global Development Finance Architecture: Implications for Multilateral Development Banks post COVID, will also feature the President of the African Development Bank Group, Dr Akinwumi Adesina, and the Bank’s Chief Economist and Vice President for Economic Governance and Knowledge Management Professor Kevin Chika Urama.

 

Jim Yong Kim, M.D., Ph.D., is Vice Chairman and Partner at Global Infrastructure Partners, a fund that invests in infrastructure projects across several sectors around the world.

 

Kim served as the 12th President of the World Bank Group from July 2012 to February 2019. Soon after he began his tenure, the organisation established two goals to guide its work: end extreme poverty by 2030; and boost shared prosperity, focusing on the bottom 40 percent of the population in developing countries. Along with partners, the World Bank achieved two successive record replenishments of the institution’s funding support to the world’s poorest countries.
