Economic Adviser

Harry Broadman, Economic Advisor

Harry G. Broadman is Economic Adviser for the Africa Region at the World Bank in Washington, DC. Previously at the Bank, he served as Lead Economist for Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union, and as Senior Economist for China Operations. Prior to joining the World Bank in 1993, Dr. Broadman held a variety of senior positions in government, academia and the private sector. These include serving in the U.S. White House on the President's Council of Economic Advisers (CEA), as Chief of Staff and Senior Economist, where he managed the day-to-day operations of the CEA. He also served in the White House as Assistant United States Trade Representative, (at the rank of Assistant Secretary) where he was in charge of negotiating key portions of the Uruguay Round, which led to the creation of the WTO, and of the NAFTA, and where he also served on the White House Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). Earlier, Dr. Broadman was Chief Economist of the U.S. Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs. He also served as a Fellow at the Brookings Institution. Dr. Broadman also served as a professor on the faculties of Harvard University and Johns Hopkins University. In the private sector, Dr. Broadman was as an Economic Consultant at the Rand Corporation and was Assistant Director at Resources for the Future, Inc.

Dr. Broadman received his undergraduate education at Brown University, graduating magna cum laude, with a joint degree in economics and history, and elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He received a doctorate in economics from the University of Michigan. Dr. Broadman is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

In his current role at the World Bank, Dr. Broadman is a key architect of the Bank's new corporate strategy in Africa, and of a new investment fund—the Africa Catalytic Growth Fund—that facilitates innovative investments on the Sub-Saharan continent. In early 2007, the World Bank published his new book, Africa's Silk Road: China and India's New Economic Frontier. When he served as Lead Economist for Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union, he managed the Bank’s structural adjustment loan operations in the Russian Federation—prior to, during, and after that country’s economic crisis in the late 1990s and early 2000s. He also managed major loan and policy operations in the war-torn Balkans and in the Central Asia Republics. His book, From Disintegration to Reintegration: Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union in International Trade, was published by the World Bank in early 2006. In his first appointment at the Bank, as Senior Economist for China Operations, Dr. Broadman led the Bank’s lending operations and analytical work in China on state-owned enterprise reform, WTO accession, competition policy and corporate governance reform. Among numerous publications on the Chinese economy, he is the author of The Business(es) of the Chinese State, which was published as the lead article in the professional economics journal The World Economy.
