Governing Council of ALSF Elected EBID as a Substantive Member and the Director of Legal Department for EBID as Second Vice-President
The Governing Council of the Africa Legal Support Facility (ALSF) has elected EBID as a Substantive Member and Mr. Mamadou Saïdou Camara, Director of Legal Department for EBID, as their Second Vice-President during their annual meeting on 22 May 2023 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
EBID has been an alternate member of the Governing Council of the ALSF since 2021 and is represented by Mr. Camara, who will serve a two-year term as the Second Vice-President of the Facility until 2025.
During his tenure as the Bank’s representative on the Governing Council, the invaluable contributions and commitment of the Director of Legal Department for EBID to the mission of the ALSF facilitated the extension of the Facility’s mandate to fourteen additional years, ensuring that the organisation remains relevant, responsive, and effective.
The ALSF, an international organisation hosted by the African Development Bank (AfDB) Group, in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, provides legal advice and technical assistance to African countries in structuring and negotiating complex commercial transactions, creditor litigation and other related sovereign transactions.
