Donald Kaberuka, AfDB President

The African Development Bank (AfDB) is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year: half a century of development financing for the African continent.

The celebrations, featuring a number of different activities, will be launched on 22 April 2014 at the Palais des Congrès of Tunis, in Tunisia.

Taking part in the event will be representatives of the accredited diplomatic corps in Tunis, international organizations, development partners, civil society organizations, the media and the private sector.

The Tunisian government will be well represented. Tunisia is the country that has been home to the Group’s Temporary Relocation Agency for over a decade. A high-level delegation will attend the ceremony from Côte d’Ivoire, the country in which the AfDB has its head office. All of this is leading up to the finale of the celebrations in Abidjan in November 2014.

The Tunis ceremony will feature artistic performances, a video screening and speeches, including the launch speech to be given by AfDB President, Donald Kaberuka.

The fiftieth anniversary of Africa’s pre-eminent development finance institution will be an opportunity for the AfDB board, management, staff and stakeholders to look back and reflect on the support given to the African member countries. Above all, it will also be a time for reflection regarding the next 50 years. This theme of retrospection and prospection is also reflected in that of the 2014 annual meeting of the Bank which takes place in Kigali, Rwanda, from 19 to 23 May 2014, with the title ‘The next 50 years: the Africa we want.’

Date: 22 April, 2014
Venue: Palais des Congrès, Tunis
Time: 15:00 CAT
