Business Day reports that Kim, in a statement, said he’ll be joining the private sector where he feels he can make a more powerful impact.

The opportunity to join the private sector was unexpected, but I’ve concluded that this is the path through which I will be able to make the largest impact on major global issues like climate change and the infrastructure deficit in emerging markets.
