Ethiopian officials 'appreciate AfDB infrastructure efforts'

25 August 2010

Improvements made to Ethiopia's infrastructure - which may include road, water and energy projects - have been commended by the country's government officials.

The African Development Bank (AfDB) group chief economist Mthuli Ncube discussed such matters at the Regional African Vital Statistics and Common Registration Inter-Ministerial Meeting, held earlier this month in Addis Ababa.

And the organisation said Ethiopian government officials "expressed appreciation for the Bank's long-standing development partnership in support of Ethiopia's poverty reduction efforts, particularly in the priority area of infrastructure".

Mr Ncube held meetings with private sector representatives as well as government ministers.

It allowed both parties to look at Ethiopia's Growth and Transformation Plan, considering ways for the country to develop its economy over the coming years and how it can reduce poverty.

A study - Private Sector Participation in Infrastructure in Africa - published in July, found there are increasing achievements of private infrastructure projects in the continent, the AfDB revealed.
