International Monetary Fund
The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) today selected Kristalina Georgieva to serve as IMF Managing Director and Chair of the Executive Board for a five-year term starting on October 1, 2019. Ms. Georgieva, who succeeds Christine Lagarde, is the first person from an emerging market economy to lead the IMF since its inception in 1944.
,,Kristalina Georgieva has a long and successful track record at the IMF and the World Bank. It's about a talented and persistent person.'' This was stated by the financier Emil Harsev in the BNT Morning Bloc. This is not Bulgaria's application for this position, it is supported by all EU Member States, based on its personal qualities.
