World Bank Managing Director Sri Mulyani Indrawati on the Governance—Growth Nexus: Key to Competitiveness in Asia
We are honored to invite you to join us for timely remarks by Sri Mulyani Indrawati. She is one of the most dynamic and insightful leaders in international finance and development. Ibu Sri Mulyani will discuss the impact of governance on economic growth in Southeast Asia and in other developing regions of the world. After championing financial and political reform in Indonesia as Minister of Finance, Sri Mulyani’s transition to the World Bank gave her the opportunity to leverage the bank’s role to encourage reforms and institutional architecture in other countries. As The World Bank faces new challenges, including assisting in the aftermath of the Arab Spring while Europe and United States are distracted by internal difficulties, Ibu Sri Mulyani will share her insights on the connection between governance and economic growth.
Sri Mulyani joined the World Bank in June 2010. She is responsible for the Bank’s operations in South Asia, Africa, Europe and Central Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, East Asia and the Pacific, and the Middle East and North Africa. Prior to joining the Bank, she served as Indonesia’s Minister of Finance, at which time she guided economic policy for one of the largest countries in Southeast Asia, and one of the biggest states in the world, navigating successfully in the midst of the global economic crisis, implementing key reforms, and earning the respect of her peers across the world.
Ibu Sri Mulyani holds a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Illinois and a BA in Economics from the University of Indonesia. She has received numerous honors and awards, including Euromoney Magazine’s Global Finance Minister of the Year, and Emerging Markets Best Finance Minister in Asia. She is also regularly featured on Forbes List of the 100 Most Powerful Women.
