ON THE OCCASION OF THE

IN LUSAKA, ZAMBIA

TUESDAY, MAY 24TH, 2016.

 

IT IS MY SINGULAR HONOUR AND PRIVILEGE TO WARMLY WELCOME YOU TO LUSAKA. WE ARE PRIVILEGED TO HAVE YOU IN ZAMBIA AT THIS HISTORIC GATHERING. ON BEHALF OF THE GOVERNMENT AND THE PEOPLE OF THE REPUBLIC OF ZAMBIA AND INDEED ON MY OWN BEHALF, I AM DEEPLY HONOURED TO ADDRESS YOU TODAY ON THE OCCASION OF THE OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE 2016 AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK GROUP ANNUAL MEETINGS.

THESE ANNUAL MEETINGS, YOUR EXCELLENCIES, HAVE AN APPROPRIATE FOCUS ON A VERY CURRENT CHALLENGE OF “ENERGY AND CLIMATE CHANGE”, AN ISSUE THAT THREATENS TO ERODE THE CONTINENT’S ECONOMIC GAINS OF THE PAST DECADE IF NOT ADDRESSED.

OUR EXPECTATIONS ARE THAT THESE MEETINGS WILL GENERATE RESOLUTIONS THAT WILL HELP AFRICA SHAPE ITS POST 2016 DEVELOPMENT AGENDA AND ADDRESS THE NUMEROUS RAMIFICATIONS OF ENERGY DEFICITS AND CLIMATE CHANGE CONFRONTING THE CONTINENT. I AM CONFIDENT THAT OUR EXPECTATIONS WILL BE MET GIVEN AN ARRAY OF EXPERTISE AND EXPERIENCE FROM YOUR EXCELLENCIES HEADS OF STATE AND GOVERNMENT AND HIGH PROFILE FINANCE AND DEVELOPMENT EXPERTS PARTICIPATING.
