Governors from Central Banks in COMESA have in the past noted that IFRS9 requires that financial reporting take into account historic, current and forward-looking information (including macro-economic data), in credit risk management, marking a shift from previous approach based on incurred losses. IFRS9 emphasizes on early recognition of credit losses as it will no longer be appropriate for entities to wait for an incurred loss event to have occurred before credit losses are recognized.

The training was attended by delegates from twelve (12) Central Banks of COMESA Member States namely: Burundi, D R Congo, Egypt, Eswatini, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Rwanda, Sudan, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
