Prof. Emmanuel Nnadozie, an economist and development expert, became the Executive Secretary of the African Capacity Building Foundation on Dec. 1, 2013. He came from the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) in Addis Ababa where he worked from 2004 to 2012.
His last post at the Commission was Director of Macroeconomic Policy Division and Chief Economist. In addition, he was an Adviser to the Executive Secretary of the Commission. Among his major achievements in that role was his successful supervision of the production for four unbroken years of the flagship publication of the Commission, the annual Economic Report on Africa, between 2010 and 2013.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day today, I take the opportunity to wish all female staff members in the Foundation, a very happy Women's Day.
