The President of the United States has nominated Ajay Banga as the new Director General of the World Bank. In addition to his background as former CEO of Mastercard, Banga has strong ties to the powerful network Trilateral Commission, Klaus Schwab’s globalist organisation the World Economic Forum and the Council on Foreign Relations think-tank.
Indian-born Banga has a background at major bank Citigroup, was CEO of payment operator Mastercard between 2010 and 2020 and is currently vice chairman of venture capital firm General Atlantic.
“Banga has spent three decades building and leading successful global companies that bring jobs and investment to developing countries,” Joe Biden commented on his nomination in a press release. Biden further asserts that Banga is “uniquely qualified” to lead the organization.
Biden also praises Banga for his “vast experience in mobilizing public private resources to address the most pressing challenges of our time”, particularly climate change, and he is deemed to have a “unique perspective” when it comes to “reducing poverty and increasing prosperity”.
Notably, Joe Biden also mentions Banga’s membership of the Trilateral Commission as a merit worth highlighting in his nomination – a globalist-oriented think tank founded by top politician Henry Kissinger at the behest of ultra-globalist David Rockefeller and described as one of the most influential think tanks in the world.
“The Trilateral Commission is an elite global private organization. The idea is for members to meet in an informal setting without media scrutiny. The aim is to influence behind the scenes and thus steer the decisions that governments take, far from the values that characterise, for instance, social liberals“, stated, for example, Swedish Green Party members Birger Schlaug and Marie-Louise Lindholm in an opinion piece in connection with the revelation that Center Party leader Annie Lööf has become a member of the organization.
Banga is also listed as an “agenda contributor” by ultra-globalist Klaus Schwab’s lobby organisation, the World Economic Forum. He has also written several articles on reforming global capitalism and has been a regular participant at the WEF’s annual conference in Davos.
Another globalist think-tank of which Banga is a member is the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) – where a long list of powerhouses such as George Soros, David Rockefeller, George H.W Bush and Bill and Hillary Clinton have also been members. Analysts have long pointed to the Council on Foreign Relations as effectively one of the most politically influential organizations in the US.
It is worth noting that the US is the World Bank’s largest shareholder and is usually the country that decides who will head the organization. Former Director-General David Malpass announced last week that he is stepping down from his post.
