Cooperation with the old colonizer would continue for decades, for trade, as well as for technical issues including computerization and training. All the newly-independent Portuguese-speaking countries in Africa developed mature financial systems comprising a central bank, with regulation and supervision functions over public and private commercial banks, insurance companies, and stock exchanges. Local political, financial, and technical elites framed new national macro-prudential financial systems in Africa.
