Welcome to our third edition of the bulletin. Our annual Board of Governors meeting took place in Dakar Senegal on 26 & 27 June, with the theme: “Building Capacity for Domestic Resource Mobilization.” We bade farewell to our Chair, Hon. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Coordinating Minister of the Economy and Hon. Minister of Finance of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and we welcomed Hon. Christian Magnagna, Minister of Budget for the Republic of Gabon, as the new Chair. Key issues highlighted in the meeting's deliberations and keynote addresses reiterated that capacity development remains a strategic choice for Africa, with the need to pay extra attention to resource mobilization in order to gain on results and impacts of operations. It was also emphasized that continuous engagement with strategic partners is beneficial to strengthening implementation and operational activities of the Foundation.

The remarkable achievements ACBF has registered over the past 26 years is not by accident in our opinion. They have come through hard work, dedication, commitment, purposeful leadership, support from the member countries as well as productive partnership building.

The recognition of ACBF as the African Union’s Specializes Agency for Capacity Development launches the beginning of a new era for capacity building by ACBF, which will require an appropriate level of political commitment and financial support from all stakeholders.

Ghana’s partnership with ACBF is a tremendous blessing for us and therefore the opportunity for Ghana to host the 26th ACBF Board of Governors Meeting is something that we treasure.

Africa needs ACBF as much, probably more now, than at the time it was created in 1991.
