“Our rebranding represents our rejuvenation and recommitment to innovate and play a more active role in promoting trade, economic development and regional integration, at a critical time when the region is looking to more vigorously advance economic transformation and ratchet up the tapering growth,” said Admassu Tadesse, President and Chief Executive of the TDB.
Furthermore, Admassu underlined the need to have strong, African grown, financial institutions to drive economic growth and sustain the gains that have been accomplished in development so far.
“As a bank, we are not just interested in financial returns; we are also interested in economic returns. This is why also focus on trade and integration. It is extremely important for the region,” Admassu also said.
