World Bank CEO Kristalina Georgieva travels in Mumbai local train



World Bank CEO Kristalina Georgieva today travelled in a local train and also inspected the operations of the suburban rail system which has been supported by the international financial institution. Georgieva arrived here last night on her first India visit. "She visited our office in Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC) and interacted with senior officials about the various World Bank-funded projects in the city," said an official from the MRVC.

The Corporation, a joint venture between the Maharashtra Government and Indian Railway, has been tasked with executing various projects in the metropolis. After meeting with MRVC officials, she left with her team, bought a second class suburban train ticket at Churhgate station and got into a ladies compartment. During her journey, she interacted with commuters and patiently heard their experiences while travelling in suburban trains, said a member of her visiting team.
