Ghana’s Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, said the 57th Annual General Meeting of the African Development Bank (AfDB) offers leaders of the continent a rare opportunity to deliberate, create and review home-grown solutions to economic development.
The meeting, which focuses on ‘Achieving Climate Resilience and a Just Energy Transition for Africa, will be hosted by Ghana, in Accra from May 23 to May 27.
Speaking at a press conference on the preparation last week, Ofori-Atta said the event would provide Africa with an opportunity to advance African solutions to African problems and fast-track the recovery process.
According to reports, the meeting will feature closed and knowledge events where challenges threatening the regional economy, with a focus on climate change adaptation and energy transition, would be deliberated.
Report says that many African nations are currently battling increasing debts, skyrocketing inflation, rising fiscal deficits and currency depreciation crisis with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank.
