Medium - Term Strategy 2008 - 2012
This Medium Term Strategy constitutes a road map for the Bank and its partners at a critical time for Africa. Its elaboration benefited from wide consultation and is consistent with the High Level Panel Report. It combines ambition and realism and clearly spells out deliverables. When work began to draw up this plan, the financial crisis was in its very early stages with its full economic ramifications slowly unfolding. The ADB and other multilateral development banks are called upon to play a bigger role, to do more, to innovate. I am determined that the African Development Bank meets this call. Our central challenge then is how to stay focused on core priorities while providing response to the new unfolding economic landscape.
