BADEA DG assures Sierra Leone of continuous support

 The Algeria born Chief Executive of the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA), Abdel Aziz Khelef, has assured Sierra Leone’s President Ernest Bai Koroma of his institution’s continuous support.

Speaking to journalists Monday before departing here for other West African countries, Khelef said the main focus of his visit was to discuss mutual cooperation between Sierra Leone and BADEA and also to assure the government and people of Sierra Leone of his institution’s continuous support in exploring various means of promoting and developing the cooperation between them.

He said BADEA will support projects which are directed towards improving the living conditions of the people, easing pressure on them and reducing poverty.

According to him, BADEA will support projects that are related to rural development and the environment, including rural water supply and sewage, or those aiming at reducing negative impact of drought and desertification, projects visibly in line with current approaches to development.
