Babacar Ndiaye Lecture 2022
Since its inception in 2017, the Babacar Ndiaye Lecture has become one of the highlights on the Afreximbank calendar. Held annually on the sidelines of the World Bank meetings, this one-of-kind event serves as a nexus for Afreximbank shareholders, partners and professionals, along with existing and potential clients spanning all industries. As event hosts, the Bank is also honoured to welcome CEOs and senior executives of banks and financial institutions, captains of industry and business leaders, senior government officials and central bankers, leaders and representatives of international organisations and DFIs, researchers and members of the academic community, as well as the continent’s diplomatic corps and Chambers of Commerce. In addition, the event provides an excellent opportunity to connect with the African Diaspora, policymakers, professionals in the development community, as well as investors interested in business opportunities in Africa.
The Babacar Ndiaye Lecture has attracted about 150 attendees in person and was held as a black tie, five-course dinner event. The last two years have been different. Due to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 and 2021 lectures were virtual events.
The Babacar Ndiaye Lecture series honours the founding role the late Dr. Babacar Ndiaye played in the establishment of Afreximbank. As President of the African Development Bank from May 1985 to August 1995, he is credited with being a forefather of Africa’s economic growth and ideological progress. We are truly proud to cement his legacy in this way and to help sustain his vision of the structural transformation of Africa’s economies.
