I take this opportunity, in a special way, to thank my fellow Board Members for their unwavering support throughout the year. On behalf of my colleagues, I thank the Governing Council and the Advisory Panel for their valuable guidance and oversight. I thank all our shareholders and development partners for supporting the Bank in resource mobilisation activities. I thank our clients for their continued cooperation and support. I appreciate the tireless work of the Management and staff which has enabled the Bank to excel to new heights of performance in the face of growing regional and global challenges.
The story of the East African DevelopmentbBank has been one of hard work, resilience and vision. It has supported economic growth through lending to business, pioneered equity finance and interceded on policy for the creators of wealth in East Africa, one of Africa’s fastest growing regions.
