CRDB's Chief Commercial Officer, Dr Joseph Witts, and the Repoa executive director, Dr Donald Mmari, signed the document on behalf of their two organisations yesterday.
Dr Witts said the decision to partner with Repoa came about by the bank's realisation and understanding of the role of researches in stimulating economic development in any given country.
