Dakar, Senegal (PANA) - The Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA), will organize a forum in Algiers, the Algerian capital, to review its operations in Sub-Saharan African Countries.
The Forum, the third in the series, will be held in coordination with the Algerian Ministry of Finance from 11-13 December, 2011.
The Forum, which will be attended by representatives of 40 African countries -- which are beneficiaries of BADEA’s assistance -- is intended to provide information on the Bank’s activities, facilities, rules and procedures for disbursements and procurements of goods and services financed by BADEA.
It is also aimed at increasing the effectiveness of BADEA’s missions and promoting discussions on the implementation of BADEA’s projects and technical assistance operations and on how to overcome the problems facing the implementation of these projects.
The Forum is also expected to provide opportunities for networking and for the exchange of views among English-speaking and French-speaking countries.
It will discuss African development issues, such as food security, energy, water supply, sanitation and other regional projects.
BADEA's first Forum was held for 10 English-Speaking countries from 1-5 June, 2008, while the meeting, its second forum, for 13 francophone countries was held 9-13 November, 2008.
