Nena Stoiljkovic is making her first visit to Australia as Vice President for Asia and the Pacific for the International Finance Corporation (IFC), a job that means she is responsible for all IFC operations in East and South Asia, as well as the Pacific.

IFC — a sister organisation of the World Bank and member of the World Bank Group — is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in emerging markets. It aims to find ways to direct more private investment into the countries and communities where poor people live.

In conversation with Professor Stephen Howes, Ms Stoiljkovic will discuss IFC’s new strategy, its approaches to maximising finance for development and private sector investment, and its work in the Asia Pacific region.

Ms Stoiljkovic has global experience in development issues such as climate change, gender, and fragile and conflict-affected situations, and has previously served in a number of leadership positions at IFC and the World Bank Group.
