IMF Chief Economist Gita Gopinath Calls On PM Modi

Dr Gopinath will start her new role at the IMF on January 21, 2022.

New Delhi:

Chief Economist of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Gita Gopinath on Wednesday called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“Chief Economist of the IMF, @GitaGopinath called on PM @narendramodi,” Prime Minister’s Office said in a tweet.

This meeting comes in the wake of an announcement by the IMF that its First Deputy Managing Director (FDMD) Geoffrey Okamoto will resign next year, and Chief Economist Gita Gopinath will replace him.

Although Dr Gopinath had been scheduled to return to her academic position at Harvard University in January next year, she decided to stay and accepted the new position, the IMF said in a statement.

“In particular, the FDMD will take the lead on surveillance and related policies, oversee research and flagship publications and help foster the highest quality standards for Fund publications,” the release noted.

Dr Gopinath will start her new role on January 21, 2022.
