As an ardent promoter of innovative financing for Africa’s transformation, Jito is often called upon by the United Nations Economic Commission (UNECA) to participate in the formulation of Investment and Finance policy and to speak at high-level global fora such as the African Development Forum alongside African Heads of State and Ministers of Finance.
