On 3 November 2011, the Central Bank of Swaziland took over as chairperson of the COMESA Committee of Central Bank Governors at a meeting held at the Royal Villas, Ezulwini, Swaziland.
In assuming the seat, Central Bank of Swaziland Governor, Mr. Martin Dlamini said Swaziland was honoured to take over the chairmanship of such an important organ of the COMESA. “During our term we will thrive to achieve the goals that we have set and outlined in our programme,” he said. “I would like to assure you Governors that the Central Bank of Swaziland will serve this committee to its utmost ability.” Swaziland takes over the chair from the Central Bank of Sudan.
