US: Kaberuka to chair IMF's Independent Evaluation Office panel

Washington, D.C., US (PANA) - The International Monetary Fund’s Executive Board has appointed a high-level panel to undertake an external evaluation of the IMF’s Independent Evaluation Office (IEO).

In its announcement on Monday in Washington, DC., the Board said that the three-member panel is chaired by Donald Kaberuka, the immediate past President of the African Development Bank and Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Mr. Kaberuka is currently a Special Envoy for Financing the African Union and the Peace Fund. He was appointed to the post in early 2017. He had served the AfDB as the seventh President and Chairman of its Board of Directors for two successive five-year terms (2005–15).

The IMF Executive Board also named two other members of IEO. They are Der Jiun Chia, who is the Assistant Managing Director of the Markets and Investment Group at the Monetary Authority of Singapore; and Pernilla Meyersson, who is currently the acting chief of staff at the General Secretariat of the Sveriges Riksbank.

In her career at the Sveriges Riksbank, Meyersson held a number of senior positions varying from Director of Communication (2006–12), head of the Financial Market Analysis Division (2004–06), among others.

Prior to her assignment as acting chief of staff at the Sveriges Riksbank, Ms. Meyersson was the Alternate Executive Director in the Office of the Nordic Baltic Constituency at the IMF (2013–15).
