Minister of Economy, Finance and Investment Support Ali Kooli and the AfDB Director General for North Africa Mohamed El Azizi, who signed the agreements, discussed the bilateral financial cooperation programme for 2021 in terms of financing development and budget support projects.
They reviewed the results of the new strategy launched by the AfDB to develop the pharmaceutical industry in Africa, while working to support the technical, logistical and human capacities of companies active in this sector and establishing regional partnerships to boost cooperation in this area.
The AfDB and the Ministry will soon discuss practical steps to implement this strategy through a public-private partnership, the same source said.
