Governors, the board, management and staff of the African Development Bank Group—meeting in the Ghanaian capital for its annual meetings this week—devoted much of Wednesday to celebrating Africa Day.
African nations and institutions mark Africa Day annually on 25 May to celebrate the 1963 founding of the erstwhile Organisation of African Unity—today the African Union. The Bank Group held a colourful ceremony during its ongoing annual meetings in honor of Africa Day 2022.
An African Development Bank report released Thursday shows that the institution was pivotal in 2021, delivering timely investments that are helping millions of Africans overcome the unprecedented challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
