Dear Members of the Press,
Ladies and gentlemen
Good morning to you all.
I wish to welcome you to the Annual Meetings for 2022 of the African Development Bank Group.
I am so pleased that we all can meet physically, after the 2 years plus of Covid-19 that has prevented us from having physical annual meetings.
I am delighted that you, the press, are here in such large numbers from all over the world. We thank you for coming to hear of our work, the challenges facing Africa, and how the African Development Bank is responding to these challenges.
« I’m optimistic. Africa will not experience a food crisis », African Development Bank president said, on may 23 in Accra

In 2017, 32-year-old Hamsa Hamidou of Simiri in southwest Niger’s Tillabéry region, was given a cow. Three years later, he sold it and used the money to buy a sheep and ewe. “I fattened them and then sold them. I continued this way and three years later, I had four ewes, three sheep, and a cow,” he says.
In the DRC, thanks to the African Development Bank, the renovation of several sections of road has made it easier to sell agricultural products.
In the early 2010s, Godelive Ngalula, a trader from Kikwit, the main town of Kwilu Province in the Democratic Republic of Congo, spent a week to travel the 350 kilometres (km) to Tshikapa in Kasaï Province and 50,000 Congolese francs (about $24.5) on food. A decade later, the situation has changed. “The trip takes only about a day thanks to the better road. Travel costs have dropped from $80 to $20 and I spend only 2,000 Congolese francs, or $1, on food,” she says happily.
