Recently, she added another feather to her cap by becoming the 1st woman and 2nd person of Indian origin to feature on the IMF’s ‘Wall Of Former Chief Economists’.
Prior to her, Raghuram Rajan served as the IMF’s Chief Economist and Director of Research from 2003 to 2006 and was featured on this wall.
