Jorge Familiar, a Mexican national, is the Vice President of the World Bank for Latin America and the Caribbean since May 1, 2014. He is the first Latin American to be appointed to that position in the last 30 years.

Eradicating extreme poverty and promoting shared prosperity through the creation of opportunities for all Latin Americans are at the core of his vision for the Region.

As Vice President and Corporate Secretary of the World Bank Group since August 2010, Familiar played a key role in facilitating and promoting cooperation and dialogue between the Board of Governors, Boards of Executive Directors and Management of the World Bank Group institutions in the adoption of the new strategy for the eradication of extreme poverty globally by 2030.
