Indian appointed to key IMF post
November 21, 2009
Tiwari, currently Director of the Office of Budget and Planning, is set to assume the position, which was held by Shailendra Anjaria before his retirement from the IMF earlier this year.
"Mr Tiwari has the experience and skills" to promote consensus building, which is a critical goal of the IMF Board and Management, Strauss-Kahn said in a statement.
"He is widely respected throughout the institution. He has a proven track record in managing a complex work programme, in particular as Director of the Office of Budget and Planning during a very difficult time for the institution," he said.
