12 April 2010
The African Development Bank (ADB) organized a workshop at its facilities in Tunis on 8 and 9 April for the PIDA, the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa.
PIDA is a programme aimed at implementing a strategy for developing infrastructures on the regional and continental scale in the sector of transport, energy, water, telecommunications, and IT.
The gathering allowed for sectoral studies to be defined which will culminate in the preparation of a detailed analysis of the various different strategic options to be adopted in order to be able to attain the objectives for infrastructure development in Africa by 2030.
The conclusion of the studies is scheduled for 2011, according to a press release from the event.
As well as this, the ADB last week likewise approved a loan of 17.5 million Dollars to assist the government of Malawi in implementing its growth and development strategy with a view to reducing poverty.
