Lecture by Nigerian Finance Minister - Managing the Challenges of Reform in a Global Context
Global Economic Governance Progamme, Annual Lecture 2005: Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala

MANAGING THE CHALLENGES OF REFORM IN A GLOBAL CONTEXT - THE CASE OF NIGERIA
Friday 27 May 2005, 5pm
Department of Politics and International Relations, Manor Rd

This year's lecture will be given by Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the Nigerian Finance Minister and Chair of the World Bank Development Committee. Dr Okonjo-Iweala is one of only two female Finance Ministers in the world and controls the finances of a nation of over 130 million people in a country which is almost the size of Western Europe.

In her current post Dr Okonjo-Iweala has re-negotiated Nigeria's debt burden with the World Bank and implemented dramatic economic and social reforms which are already combating corruption, improving transparency, and turning the economy around. In the context of Britain's leadership of the G8 Group and the Commission for Africa's report, Dr.
Okonjo-Iweala's lecture is particularly timely and important.
