Tanzania / Deputy Secretary-General to participate at a joint International Monetary Fund-Government of Tanzania Conference

 

DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania, March 7, 2009/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Daily press briefing by the office of the spokesperson for the UN secretary-general

Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro will travel on Sunday to Dar es Salaam to participate in a joint International Monetary Fund-Government of Tanzania Conference on “Changes:  Successful Partnerships for Africa’s Growth Challenges”.  That Conference takes place from 9 to 11 March.

 

The Conference will aim to address key economic policy questions, with the common goal of forging a renewed partnership for growth in Africa in the twenty-first century.  It will consider what Africa’s successes tell us about the main bottlenecks and risks to sustained growth, poverty reduction and achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.  It will look at how countries can tap into the potential of the private sector and the financial sector to advance these Goals.

 

The Deputy Secretary-General will provide one of two keynote addresses at the Conference, and she will participate in a press stakeout following her remarks.  She intends to meet with a broad cross-section of international representatives, Ministers and local Tanzanian officials while she is in Dar es Salaam.
