The head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Kristalina Georgieva announced that the chief economist of the fund, Gita Gopina, is returning to work at the Department of Economics at Harvard University, as previously planned. Ms. Guoping worked for the foundation for three years; by agreement with Harvard, she worked for a year more than the original agreement provided.
“I would like to express my personal gratitude to Geeta for her impressive contribution, wise advice, dedication to the mission of the research department and the foundation as a whole, as well as for her inclusive and accessible approach to colleagues and staff,” Ms. Georgieva said at website IMF.
Gita Gopita is the first woman chief economist at the IMF. She is responsible for the release of the IMF report aimed at ending the coronavirus pandemic. This was followed by the creation of an appropriate working group with the participation of the heads of the IMF, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
