The president of the African Development Bank (AfDB), Donald Kaberuka, on Friday attended the official festivities marking the adoption of a new Tunisian Constitution, promising the support of the pan-African financial institution to Tunisia.
“In addition to sharing the celebration of the Constitution, AfDB wishes to show its resolute support while hailing the people of Tunisia and its authorities for the passing of the new Constitution through dialogue and consensus,' Kaberuka declared in a statement which PANA obtained.
He said the latest developments in Tunisia “are good news for the country and for Africa since they will contribute significantly to restoring the confidence of the economic investors within the country and abroad”.
AfDB said it was highly confident about Tunisia’s capacity to take up the challenges for the economic recovery it is now facing and restate its willingness to support the North-African country in this period.
Since January 2011 when Ben Ali regime was sacked, AfDB has spent US$ 1.492 billion in the north African country to expedite its projects and programmes.
