IMF head to go on Africa tour anew

    International Monetary Fund managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn will visit Senegal, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, and Tanzania later this month to hold talks with leaders of government, the private sector and civil society on how the agency can help alleviate poverty and promote growth in these countries. The tour, which will take place from February 24 to February 29, is Strauss-Kahn’s second to the continent since taking the helm at the IMF in November 2007. During the visit, the IMF chief intends to reaffirm his organization’s pledge to work closely with poor nations in the region.
