Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, The First Woman to be Treasure and Foreign Minister of Nigeria, and the Former Managing Director of the World Bank in a Cross-Sectoral Meeting with Israelis dealing with International Development

In partnership with Lumos Global and Fahn Kanne Accountant Firm, we hosted in May 16th a fascinating meeting with Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the former treasure and foreign minister of Nigeria, no. 2 in the World Bank, a directorate in Twitter, Standard Chartered Bank and the Chair of the Global Vaccine Alliance - GAVI, about “Innovative Israeli Solutions for Africa” .

During the meeting, Dr. Iweala greeted the government decision to form an Israeli investment fund to encourage Israeli entrepreneurs to act in developing countries, and mentioned that she thinks that Israel’s time to enter the African market is now.

Additionally, Dr. Iweala mentioned that “it’s time to scale up” and move from the pilot stage to the significant implementation of projects in the field.

Dr. Iweala added that there is no need to invent space technologies for Africa, but there is a need to adapt the existing capabilities and express them in the field.

We thank Davidi Wertman from Lomus Global, David Ya’ari, Fan Kanne Accountants for their cooperation, and the chance to meet such a great personality.
