NEW AFRICA BUSINESS NEWS (NABN) Freetown, Sierra Leone- “This financing is the first of two successive operations to support the general budget for fiscal years 2023 and 2024, each worth around $20 million,” AfDB report sent out on Monday September 18th, 2023.
The program is geared towards to sponsor reforms in two main areas: improving the favorable environment for the private sector to facilitate financial rehab and green growth, as well as bolstering the efficiency, accountability, and transparency of public expenditure, according to the report.
It is anticipated to enable the growth of agribusiness and micro, small, and medium-sized businesses, in addition to financing efforts to integrate gender and climate action initiatives into economic development, it added.
“The program has a strong focus on private sector development, with particular emphasis on increasing the participation of this sector in key areas, particularly agribusiness, and a strong potential for job creation, including for women and young people, and is expected, therefore that it has a positive impact on socio-economic development in Mozambique,” the report let out.
As of July 2023, the report spoke out, the functional portfolio of the bank in Mozambique amounted to $1.19 billion. These acquisitions encompass the energy, transport, agriculture, social sectors and multi-sector operations.
