Financing Africa’s Recovery: Breaking New Ground

The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) Conference of African Ministers of Finance, Planning and Economic Development, also known as CoM, is one of the premier forums on the continent for dialogue and exchanges of views between African ministers responsible for finance, planning and economic development and governors of central banks on issues pertinent to the development agenda of Africa. Now on its 54th edition, CoM 2022 was jointly hosted with the government of Senegal on the theme “Financing Africa’s Recovery: Breaking New Ground”.

Against a growing impact of the Russian war with Ukraine, African economy, finance and planning ministers, businesses and economists attending a conference in Dakar, Senegal, made an impassioned case for a complete overhaul of the global financial architecture, including President Macky Sall of Senegal, who called for a better deal for Africa.
