IMF Advisor Rania Al-Mashat speaks on career and life goals

Rania Al-Mashat, advisor at the IMF, spoke to AUC Today’s Ioanna Moriatis on her rich career as an economist: “Every international and domestic post or recognition along my career path better equips me to competently serve my country. That’s my lifelong goal,” said Al-Mashat. Al-Mashat focuses on global monetary policy and financial stability issues. The well-respected economist worked at the Central Bank of Egypt for 11 years as Sub-Governor and head of the Monetary Policy Department before joining the IMF.

My career in economics allows me to provide an important service to different governments, including that of Egypt,” said Al-Mashat. “I am able to formulate economic policy frameworks that internalize and balance the interests of all stakeholders." Enterprise attended a courtesy meeting with Al-Mashat in Washington, D.C., where she reiterated the message delivered at the 2017 World Economic Forum (WEF) and featured in a WEF article, “Governments should design policies within frameworks that have clear objectives and instruments aimed at sustainable and equitable economic growth, which should be communicated regularly.” Check out her WEF panel “Investing in Peace” (runtime: 57:16).
