Ghana is set to host the 29th Annual Conference of Board of Governors. It is being organized by the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF) together with African Union’s specialized agency for capacity development and African Union’s Specialized Technical Committee on Finance, Monetary Affairs, Economic Planning and Integration in Accra.
The 2-day conference would be held on the 13 and 14th March, 2020 on the theme, “Leveraging the 4th Industrial Revolution in Addressing Youth Unemployment”.
The Board of Governors of ACBF consists of Ministers of Finance and Economic Planning from 40 African Member states including representatives of bilateral and multi-lateral members.
The Constitution of ACBF provides for one annual meeting of Governors to review work and provide short to medium term strategic direction.
The annual meeting includes high level forums which would provide a platform to deliberate on key issues affecting Africa’s growth and development such as designing the work skills for the future, the role of government and regulatory frameworks for the 4th Industrial Revolution, harnessing 4th Industrial Revolution for effective taxation and governance and financial technology, digital currency and financial inclusion.
There will also be a presentation of the report from the High-Level panel on Illicit Financial Flows, which will be delivered by His Excellency, Thabo Mbeki, former President of the Republic of South Africa.
