Angola will host on August 27-28 the Meeting of the Ministers of Finance and Governors of the Central African Banks, the African Caucus. The meeting is an important opportunity for African leaders, represented by their Ministers of Finance, Planning and Governors of the Central Banks, to jointly present in a coordinated and organized way the major and current concerns affecting the economies of the African continent, namely the building of infrastructures and industrialization.
Among the issues scheduled to be addressed by six panels, include the General Overview of the Regional Economy, Economic Transformation and Diversification, Discussion on the 2015 African Caucus Memorandum as well as the Financing of Regional Projects connected to infrastructure.
