More information

After having graduated from the Paris Institute of Political Studies, and later from the École Nationale d'Administration (ENA), he worked nearly two decades for the French government. He worked as an official for the French Ministry of Economy and Finance (1980), was engaged in the simplification of the French tax system (1983), and held government posts until 1991.

From 1991 to 1995, Jean-Pierre Jouyet took part in the work of the European Union, in his last year of that period in the role of chief of staff to Jacques Delors, president of the European Commission.


After working as deputy chief of staff to Prime Minister Lionel Jospin from 1997 to 2000, and a four-year spell as head of the French Treasury, he became the president of the Paris Club.

In the wake of Paul Wolfowitz's nomination to head the World Bank, European governments were concerned about that bank's possible shift to the current American administration's policy of Transformational Diplomacy. Jean-Pierre Jouyet was mentioned as possibly becoming deputy to the president at the World Bank.
