Organized by DFAIT and with sponsorship from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and Nova Scotia Business Inc. (NSBI), members of Nova Scotia’s business community met with representatives of the World Bank (WB), Asian Development Bank (ADB), and Inter‐American Development Bank (IDB) on November 9th, 2012, at the Halifax Atlantica Hotel for a full‐day workshop on doing business with Interna‐ tional Financial Institutions (IFI). As one of Nova Scotia’s most active organizations within the IFI space, EduNova was invited to participate and share its experience with attendees of the workshop. EduNova’s Director of Project Development, Issmat Al‐Akhali, joined a panel discussion with representa‐ tives from CBCL, Barrington Group, and the Food Economy Group, to share expertise in securing and conducting IFI projects in foreign markets.
