Zia Qureshi

Nonresident Senior Fellow - Global Economy and Development

Zia Qureshi is currently a Nonresident Senior Fellow in the Global Economy and Development program at the Brookings Institution. His research and commentary cover global economic issues and emerging market economies.

Mr. Qureshi has thirty-five years of experience at the World Bank and the IMF (six at the IMF and then twenty-nine at the Bank). During that period, he held leadership positions across a wide range of responsibilities. His last position at the Bank was Director of Strategy and Operations in the Office of the Senior Vice President and Chief Economist, where he oversaw a large program of research and policy work on the global economy and assessment of the Bank’s country programs and operational policies.

Mr. Qureshi’s experience spans work on both global economic issues and country economic policy and operations. He led several World Bank flagship publications on the global economy, including the World Bank report on Global Economic Prospects and the joint IMF-World Bank Global Monitoring Report. Mr. Qureshi led the Bank’s engagement with the G20 on the global growth agenda, including authoring several reports and papers. He has written and published widely on the global economy and public policy, and is a frequent speaker on these issues.

Mr. Qureshi’s country work spans emerging market economies in practically all regions of the world. He led the World Bank’s analytical work, policy dialogue, and lending operations in several major economies, including leading some of the Bank's largest operations in countries facing economic and financial crises. He is the author of several country economic reports and assessments. His work runs the gamut of the growth and development agenda, from macroeconomic policy to structural reforms and development issues. He was a member of the Bank’s Operations Committee (review of projects), Risk Management Group (country risk), and Macro Advisory Group (country macroeconomic policy). He also headed the Bank’s Economic Policy Sector Board (oversight of country economic work at the Bank).

Mr. Qureshi has considerable experience of engagement in corporate strategy and management functions at senior levels. He has held senior positions of strategic and managerial leadership and has managed large teams. He has engaged with national authorities and international financial and development institutions at high levels. He represented the World Bank at major international forums. He served as Executive Secretary of the joint IMF-World Bank Development Committee (a ministerial-level body).

Mr. Qureshi holds a DPhil in Economics from Oxford University, where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar.
