  • Description

    The fifth meeting of the Economic Community of West African States opened in Togo on Wednesday (24 October) and has pledged to accelerate the economic development of the area.
    The conference was opened on Wednesday afternoon (24 October). It was categorised as a "very important" session by the new Director General of the community, Mr. Robert Tubman of Liberia.
    The delegates are examining a number of delicate questions involving the proper function of their financial institution which represents about one hundred and forty million people in sixteen countries.
    Mr. Amoussou, the Benin Finance Minister, had some mild criticism for the Community. He said that the only way the community could be brought together was with "great determination, immense sacrifice, and much hard work". The meeting was scheduled to end on Friday (26 October).
