The 7th African Fiscal Forum

In February 2019, the 7th African Fiscal forum took place in Nairobi.  It is an annual event that brings together senior officials from finance ministries across Sub-Saharan Africa to discuss fiscal challenges facing the region.

With the main aim to entrench a more effective fiscal policy for the region, the event provided an opportunity for countries to share experiences. This year’s forum came at an important point, where countries are converting the UN Sustainable Development Goals into national policy priorities, costing and financing frameworks.

Tamarind Translations provided French<->English simultaneous interpretation and equipment to all the plenary and breakout sessions for the duration of the meeting. Our appreciated services greatly simplified communication between anglophone and francophone speaking delegates.
