AfDB 'will focus on infrastructure developments'

6 September 2010

The Tunisian prime minister has said that the African Development Bank (AfDB) will be positive in improving the country's energy, water and transport issues.

Mohamed Ghannouchi was speaking at the re-inauguration of Donald Kaberuka as president of the bank when he suggested that the organisation will help Tunisia to develop alongside other African nations.

Mr Kaberuka said that he will be focusing on reforms during his tenure, adding: "I am aware of the complexity of the task awaiting me, but I am confident of our ability to deliver results."

He added that regional integration, support to fragile states, climate change and food security would also be some of the issues at the top of the AfDB's list of infrastructure changes which need to be implemented.

Mr Kaberuka was welcomed back as president of the AfDB on September 1st after being re-elected during the bank's annual meeting in Abidjan last month.
