During a press briefing, Patel said, Ajay Banga "is uniquely equipped to lead the World Bank at such a critical moment, and he's an exceptional candidate."
Banga's "leadership skills and management experience, his experience in the financial sector, will help achieve the World's Bank objectives by eliminating extreme poverty, expanding prosperity, while also doing so in a very evolving and dynamic global playing field, where we're dealing with a lot of new and pressing issues and challenges, like climate change and global health challenges and other things as well," Patel added
