    Migiro arrives today for joint conference
    By Kimani Kim

    The United Nations (UN) deputy secretary general, Dr. Asha Rose Migiro is expected to arrive today in Dar es Salaam, the second top diplomat from the global body, to tour the country in two weeks time.

    Dr Migiro will be among high profile dignitaries gathering in Dar es Salaam to attend an international conference in Dar es Salaam tomorrow to expound existing economic policies in Africa and bottlenecks towards, among other things, sustained growth and achievement of Millennium Development goals (MDGs).

    The conference jointly organised by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Tanzania Government will look in detail the economic policies questions with a view to form a renewed partnership for growth in Africa in the 21st century.

    A statement released yesterday indicates that the UN diplomat is scheduled to present a paper on 'Navigating the Tides of Globalization' at on the second day of the conference whose them is 'Changes: Successful Partnerships for Africa�s Growth Challenges'.

    "The conference would specifically discuss bottlenecks and risks to sustained growth, poverty reduction and achievement of the MDGs," read part of the statement released by the UN over the weekend.

    The gathering will look at how countries can tap the potential of the private sector and the financial sector to advance the goals and propose means by which the risks posed by exogenous shocks and a turbulent global economy can be minimised.

    IMF says it looks forward to learning more from the continent's successful economic experience especially in terms of macro- economic stability and growth.

    The President of Botswana, Mr Ian Khama, IMF Managing Director, the Chairman of the African Union commission and the President of the African Development Bank have confirmed participation.

    Other dignitaries who have confirmed participation include Ministers of Finance and Central Bank governors across the continent and representatives of multilateral organisations.
