Head of the IMF Africa Department, Ms. Antoinette Sayeh
At this juncture, I feel this joint AfDB-UNECA-AU meeting is a good opportunity to hear countries to exchange experiences and challenges. We are happy to be here to listen and to make points, talking about what is happening in the world. I am impressed by the quality of discussions. There were good discourses among ministers, some talking about reforming. All this input aims to seek an answer to the global financial crisis. The AfDB-UNECA Economic Conference is another golden opportunity for brainstorming on the continent’s economic situation. Hopefully, there will be a strong and concrete signal at the end of the conferences.
