The Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA) and the UN Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) have launched a new regional Finance and Investment Training Programme at Kenya School of Monetary Studies in the capital city of Nairobi.
The Programme is intended to strengthen the economic, financial and technical cooperation between Arab States and African nations who are non-members of the Arab League, the two organisations said in a statement.
The first session of the programme, held 4-15 Nov., addressed key issues related to Finance and Investment in Africa and was attended by 18 senior and middle level finance sector officials from 17 Anglophone African countries.
At the end of the programme, sponsored by BADEA, they received a Certificate of Participation from BADEA and UNITAR.
The second and third session under the BADEA-UNITAR Training Programme will be held in Dakar (Senegal) for Francophone countries and in Maputo (Mozambique) for Lusaphone nations.
