During the course of their mission, which started on the 23rd of September 2019, the AfDB Delegation will meet with different Commissioners of the ECOWAS Commission for discussions and consultations on the AfDB Strategy for the region.

While receiving the AfDB Delegation led by the Vice President, Dr. Khaled Sherif, H.E. Madam Finda E.M. Koroma, Vice President of the ECOWAS Commission underscored the importance of rewriting the narrative on the regional integration process in West Africa positively.

'As you are all aware regional integration is of utmost importance to both our institutions and lies at the heart of the work of ECOWAS Community Institutions and Specialised Agencies', she said.

Vice President Koroma made a presentation on the ECOWAS Vision 2020 and Roadmap for the Preparation of the ECOWAS Post-2020 Vision Blueprint to the AfDB Delegation. She invited the AfDB to collaborate with ECOWAS in the preparation of the Post-2020 Strategy for the region.
