Project General Description

The proposed operation concerns a grant of 976,000 euros from the African Development Bank (AfDB) from the resources of the Technical Assistance Fund for Middle Income Countries (TAF-MIC) and FAPA to finance the Support Project for the Start-up of the Unified Central African Financial Market. This support is in line with the Bank's Strategic Framework for Regional Integration for the period 2018-2025, particularly in its Pillar III on financial integration. The objective of this pillar is to help Financial Institutions to become regional players and develop a regional financial system aimed at mobilizing more domestic savings to meet the needs of the productive sector. It is also aligned with the Regional Integration Strategy Paper for Central Africa (DSIR-AC) for the period 2019-2025. The Programme is structured around three components, namely, the operationalisation of the unified financial market, the mobilisation of domestic savings and the strengthening of human capital on stock market instruments. This intervention will be complemented by those of the other technical and financial Partners, in particular the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

The specific objectives of the Central African Unified Financial Market Support Project (PAMFUAC) is to contribute to the modernisation of the Regional Financial Market (RFM) in order to improve financing of the economic activities by supporting regional financial institutions and capacity building for key market players.
