    Working with IFAC and the Donor Community to Support Development in Africa

    Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. I am truly delighted to be here today to participate in this important event. We have been anticipating this event for 4 or 5 years now, and I know a lot of people have worked very hard to make this happen and to make PAFA a reality.

    My congratulations to Matsobane Matlwa, Chairman of the PAFA Steering Committee and all stakeholders involved in the development of PAFA. And many thanks to Mamour Fall, President of ONECCA Senegal, for hosting this event, and to Aziz Dieye and Patrick Kabuya, Members of the Steering Committee, for actively contributing to its organization.

    And, on behalf of IFAC, congratulations to Senegal on your big move in the FIFA world rankings. Even though it was announced several weeks ago, I thought there would still be parties to celebrate! But we have enough to celebrate with the launch of PAFA.

    It’s an important step. To me, one of the most impressive things is that this was done during a period of global financial crisis!
