    Malpass made his debut1 as the 13th president of the World Bank at its headquarters in Washington D.C. Tuesday morning. "I want to thank the Board of Directors and the Governors for selecting me," he told reporters.   Malpass, former undersecretary for international affairs at the U.S. Treasury2 Department, was chosen by U.S. President Donald Trump3 in early February as the U.S. candidate for the post, following the abrupt4 resignation of former World Bank chief Jim Yong Kim.   Malpass, 63, has secured approval from the World Bank's board after a campaign without competition. The World Bank Group announced in a statement Friday that he was selected as its president for a five-year term beginning on April 9, 2019.   "There is a clear mission for the bank: poverty alleviation5 and shared prosperity. These goals are urgent, and I think we need a clear focus on achieving outcomes," he said.   Malpass also highlighted challenges such as climate change, women's role in economic growth, and the need for stronger growth. "The bank has resources, it has staff, it has the ability to actually have an impact," he said.
