The DFRC signed a “Letter of Interest” with the South Africa - based Good Governance Academy (GGA). The DFRC’s relationship with the GGA will bring about substantial benefit to the SADC DFI Network Members by participating in various GGA events. The GGA also has a pool of Corporate Governance experts which the DFRC could tap into for facilitation of programmes currently offered as well as speak at some of the Network’s Forums and many of these experts provide such services pro bono.
