Without proper investment and management, the finite nature of natural resources may disadvantage future generations. The 2015 Combined Forum gave the financial decision makers from the MEFMI region an opportunity to strategise on feasible and concrete direction and policy framework in the macroeconomic and financial sector to manage the revenue accruing from natural resources. Please see the presentations below:

The MEFMI region has witnessed significant progress since the formation of the Institute. There have been improvements in macroeconomic and financial management and reduction in external indebtedness through the HIPC initiative. Of greater importance now is building capacity for the management of reserves, as the region discovers new natural resources, particularly oil and gas in a number of MEFMI member countries. This was said by Hon Martin Dlamini, the Minister of Finance for Swaziland when he officially opened the 2015 MEFMI Combined Forum in Lima, Peru.

The Minister’s sentiments were echoed by Dr Caleb Fundanga, MEFMI Executive Director, in his welcome remarks.
