Dear distinguished members of APRACA!

We stand on the threshold of the New 2012. Summing up the results of 2011, we can state with confidence that these were generally successful and positive for multilateral activity of APRACA. Meetings of the Executive Committee in Tehran and the Regional Forum-Consultation in Bangkok which was devoted to the completion of the APRACA-IFAD Project under FinPower Program, were effective and representative. Annual program activities of APRACA agencies provided their plans implemented in full.
This year APRACA will be to consolidate and develop its cooperation with IFAD and other donor partners, to define the strategic directions that will meet the requirements of time and the realities of member countries of APRACA, and form the core of APRACA and its Agencies activity in the coming years. All of these points and ideas to be reflected in the APRACA strategic development plan for further years.
A very important task is to identify innovative solutions in rural and agricultural finance to meet the emerging challenges, and their distribution among the members of APRACA.
