The Nordic and Baltic countries are currently represented at the Executive Board by Lene Lind , Executive Director (ED). In this capacity, she engages in direct consultations and negotiations with other Executive Directors and World Bank Group Management in setting the institution’s strategy and policy priorities.

The ED represents the constituency when considering and deciding on IBRD loan and guarantee proposals and IDA credit, grant and guarantee proposals made by the President, and it decides on policies that guide the Bank's general operations. The ED is also responsible for presenting to the Board of Governors, at the Annual Meetings, an audit of accounts, an administrative budget, and an annual report on the Bank's operations and policies as well as other matters.
