Allow me to first thank both the Institute of International Finance and First National
Bank, our hosts, for inviting me to address this latest installment of the IIF-FNB Africa Financial Summit. I am particularly honoured to join the impressive list of speakers and panelists.
I have been asked to deliver the keynote address yet I do not want to pre-empt the
debates that will follow. So, I will first try to summarise some of the challenges that
our continent is facing. And, looking at the Reserve Bank’s own experience in the
South African context, I will speak about implications for how Africa’s financial
systems and its developing capital markets can best address these challenges and
sustain progress in developing the continent.
