Kganyago and 30 other central bank governors from across the continent have gathered at the Sarb offices in Pretoria, reports EWN's Masa Kekana.

The banking delegates have gathered for the opening of this year’s governors’ symposium of the Association of African Banks under the theme ‘Monetary Integration Prospects’ in Africa.

President Jacob Zuma welcomed the delegates, calling the event a milestone occasion.

Zuma says the week-long conference comes at a time when the continent is still experiencing the negative effects of the global financial crisis.
