The AfDB Pays Tribute to Late President Babacar Ndiaye

Abidjan — The African Development Bank (AfDB) will pay tribute to honor its former President, late Dr. Babacar Ndiaye, on Thursday 21 September 2017, from 10.30 am to 12.30 pm at the Bank's Headquarters.

Under the aegis of Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, President of the AfDB, the tribute ceremony will gather high level guests including former Heads of State, former AfDB Presidents and Ambassadors among others.

Dr. Babacar Ndiaye, 5th president of the AfDB from 1985 to 1995, is known for having transformed the Bank into a "Triple A" institution, a rating it still holds today. He supported the creation of many African institutions such as the African Export-Import Bank, Shelter Afrique, the African Business Roundtable. He also played a prominent role in opening up the Bank to the private sector.

The tribute aims at celebrating the life and achievements of former AfDB President, Dr. Babacar Ndiaye who passed away on 13 July 2017.
