The Director General's Welcome Message

Dear Visitors

The West African Monetary Institute (WAMI) is pleased to welcome you to the refurbished website. The Authority of Heads of State and Government of five West African Member States established WAMI, an institution of the West African Monetary Zone (WAMZ) in 2001 with a mission to undertake technical preparations of establishing the West African Central Bank (WACB) and the introduction of a single currency.

We value your confidence in our services as your visit our website and would like to assure you of our absolute commitment to providing you the timely information you need. The designing of this interactive and user-friendly portal was intended to meet the information needs of our valuable visitors. Our primary objective is to provide you, our trusted visitor with relevant and timely updated information on the activities of the West African Monetary Zone in pursuit of the regional integration agenda. It is also our desire to provide high quality analytical and statistical tools to help you to obtain comparable statistics relating to the WAMZ member countries and related agencies.

Our commitment to promoting transparency and accountability motivated the development of this platform that effectively links users and a dedicated team of experts of the WAMI. We encourage you to explore immensely and interact freely with the new features and tools available at your disposal on the website. While we anticipate a productive, enjoyable, and seamless browsing, we crave your indulgence to submit your comments to the WAMI team to enable us to serve you more efficiently.


Director General of the Institute.
