Tony Blair visits West Africa for AGI

5th September 2016

AGI's Patron Tony Blair is travelling to West Africa this week. During his visit, Mr Blair will meet our teams in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, who continue to work alongside their country counterparts to improve government effectiveness.

It is Mr Blair's first visit to the region since the Ebola crisis and he will see first-hand the progress that has been made and the challenges still to be overcome as these countries seek to recover from recent economic shocks.

Our teams are working on priority issues including: improving maternal health in Sierra Leone, creating jobs and diversifying the economy in Liberia, and building critical energy infrastructure to light homes in Guinea.

Mr Blair will be accompanied by AGI's CEO, Nick Thompson.
