We were in Ghana, one of the six founding countries of CABRI, from 21-23 May for the 29th Management Committee (MC) and the 14th General Assembly (GA) CABRI meetings.

On 22 May, the MC meeting was chaired by Mr Mahen Rawoteea, Senior Analyst at the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development, Mauritius. We were joined virtually by Joana Bento, Acting Head of the Public Finance Department at CABRI and Mr Fred Manzi, Budget Expert at the MINECOFIN of Rwanda.

On 23 May, CABRI member countries, Benin, Central African Republic, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea-Conakry, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Nigeria and South Africa joined us for the 14th CABRI General Assembly Meeting chaired by Mr Ben Akabueze, Director General of the Budget office of the Federation, Federal Republic of Nigeria. It was pleasure to have member countries Burkina Faso, Malawi and Rwanda joining us virtually as well as our colleague Joana Bento, Acting Head of the Public Finance Division.

An international organisation, CABRI is governed by three bodies: the General Assembly, the Management Committee and the Secretariat. An international agreement establishes CABRI.

The General Assembly is the highest decision-making authority. It is composed of all the CABRI member states and meets annually to ratify CABRI’s work plan and budget, adopt audited accounts and provide overall policy direction.

Between 2006 and 2011 CABRI deepened its recognition among senior budget officials, and in the international arena, as a home-grown peer network. The network became a legal entity, following the ratification of its international agreement by the six founding countries: Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Rwanda, Senegal and South Africa. CABRI’s membership has continued to grow since its establishment as an international organisation in December 2009.
