She said, “WAIFEM, CFJ and ACBF did a good job in organising the workshop. The training was timely and has great value for all participants who came from various countries and financial institutions within the sub-region. I personally benefitted from the training and will continue to put the knowledge I got from the workshop into good use.”

She pointed out, “Lectures like ‘macro-economics, the money market, regulators of the money market, operators in the money market, monetary policy, development financing, banks and financial intermediation, money market instruments and trends in the money market were carefully selected and will be of tremendous benefits to all participants who attended the workshop”.
