Ministers of the Public Service meet
The African Development Bank has just participated in the 5th Pan-African Conference of Ministers held under the auspices of the African Union Commission and the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD). The meeting was preceded by a 2-day technical experts meeting, attended by the Bank's Financial Governance Acting Manager, Gabriel Negatu. The Ministers called on the Bank and other development partners to develop a coordinated strategy for supporting the African Union / NEPAD efforts in the area of governance. The other development agencies called on the Bank to convene a Partners roundtable in 2006 on the subject.
