Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib, Prime Minister of Malaysia

“I am writing to you… to nominate Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs for the Presidency of the World Bank. I believe that Professor Sachs can provide unique leadership at the World Bank at a time of enormous challenge and opportunity for global development. I believe that he will be the strongest candidate based on his thirty years of leadership in the field of international development… Professor Sachs’s leadership has been characterized by creativity, innovation, integrity, and capacity to mobilize global stakeholders around new and effective approaches. As World Bank President, he would have an unrivaled network of trusted interlocutors around the world in government, international institutions, academia, industry, and civil society. In short, he would be in an excellent position to lead creatively and dynamically at a time when the global opportunities to cut poverty, promote education, fight disease, end hunger, and protect the environment are both strong and urgent.”

–Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib, Prime Minister of Malaysia
