The second African Regional Technical Assistance Centre in West Africa (AFRITAC West 2), is a collaborative effort between the International Monetary Fund (IMF), recipient countries and several bilateral and multilateral donors. It originated from the IMF’s response to African leaders’ call on the international community to increase technical assistance (TA) to Africa and focus it more sharply on capacity building in core macroeconomic and financial management areas. AFRITAC West 2 provides TA and training to Cabo Verde, Ghana, The Gambia, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.
AFW2 – Program Document
We welcome the increasing and positive role played … by the Africa Technical Assistance Centers (AFRITACs). Therefore we call for the expansion of TA delivery through AFRITACs—including the opening of new centers—which would ensure better traction in recipient countries and lower overall costs.
