Garry Conille, Prime Minister of Haiti

“I wish to add my voice to those of leaders around the world in strong support of the candidacy of Prof. Jeffrey D. Sachs for President of the World Bank. Widely recognized as one of the world’s leading economists and an expert in international development, Prof. Sachs’ extensive experience and unwavering commitment to reducing poverty makes him uniquely qualified to lead the World Bank and fulfill its mission at this critical time.  As Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University and Special Advisor to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on the Millennium Development Goals, Prof. Sachs’ has worked at the highest levels with governments around the world, including Haiti, to craft sound economic reforms and sustainable development policies.  He is a trusted partner and supporter of the Haitian people and all those of good will who seek to forge practical solutions to the urgent global challenges of ending hunger, achieving universal education, fighting disease, and protecting the environment. I can think of no stronger candidate to lead the World Bank, and I wholeheartedly endorse his candidacy.”

–Garry Conille, Prime Minister of Haiti
