Dr. Ernest Addison, the Governor of the Bank of Ghana (BoG), has emphasized the need for policies that boost economic resilience and foster trade between Africa and the Caribbean.
He made these remarks at the 30th Annual Meetings of Afreximbank shareholders in Accra, Ghana. He said that the two regions have a common history, untapped markets and immense potential that make them ideal partners for strategic cooperation.
He also stressed the importance of policies that “enhance resource mobilization, increase savings for development and growth, and develop domestic financial markets”, noting that such policies are crucial in tackling the twin challenges of poverty and unemployment that affect both regions.
Afreximbank is a pan-African supranational multilateral financial institution that was created in 1993 to finance and promote intra- and extra-African trade.
