A large delegation of about ten Board Directors representing about forty member countries of the African Development Bank (AfDB) Group will pay a working visit to Morocco from 26 to 30 September.

During this visit, said a statement by the AfDB, the delegation will be accompanied by the country manager of the Bank for Morocco, Achraf Hassan Tarsim.

This visit reaffirms the commitment of the African Development Bank Group to strengthen the exemplary partnership that has united Morocco with the institution for over half a century.

During their stay, the Board Directors will hold bilateral meetings with representatives of the public and private sectors to discuss the Bank’s support to the economic and social development dynamics of the Kingdom of Morocco.

The mission will also conduct field visits to review the multiple dimensions of cooperation in priority sectors.

The African Development Bank Group has been active in Morocco for over fifty years. Operations cover health, agriculture, energy, water, transport, human development and the financial sector.
