Prime Minister Maleiane lauds AfDB partnership


Mozambican Prime Minister Adriano Maleiane has given a resounding endorsement of the African Development Bank’s development strategy in his country. Receiving the Bank’s vice president for regional development, integration and business delivery, Marie-Laure Akin-Olugbade in his office on Thursday, Maleiane complimented the African Development Bank for what he said was its unique approach to development and partnership, which went beyond financing, to humanize its initiatives.

Akin-Olugbade’s courtesy call on the prime minister is part of a six-day official visit to Mozambique. Accompanying her were the group’s Director General for Southern Africa, Leïla Mokaddem and Country Manager for Mozambique, Cesar Augusto Mba Abogo.

Akin-Olugbade commended the Mozambican government for implementing various reforms that have helped to maintain the country’s stability, and for showing “strong resilience in the face of such exogenous shocks as climate change, Covid-19, conflict and terrorism.”

Earlier on Thursday, Akin-Olugbade and her team met with development partners and some members of the diplomatic corps in Maputo to discuss collaborative support to Mozambique. Partners included representatives from the World Bank, the Agence Française de Développement (AFD), the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the European Union, the United Kingdom, Spain, Sweden, KfW, The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) participated in the meeting.
