The World Bank contains a variety of specialists in different disciplines, often with abstract and hard to understand titles. Not me. When people ask what I do for the Bank I say “I build roads”. This often brings laughs from other Bank staff, but it’s true. Unfortunately, I now have to expand it to say “roads and airports” since I’m now on a steep learning curve as I begin preparation of two proposed projects in Tonga and Kiribati to improve the aviation infrastructure.
