Fund delegation examines projects in Tanzania
A delegation of Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED) is currently visiting Tanzania examining projects executed with its contributions, including a main road linking the African state with neighboring countries.
The delegation has met with Tanzanian Finance Minister Dr Philip Mpango in Dar es Salaam, the country’s capital, for assessing the ventures, namely expansion of a major hospital in the city of Zanzibar and building a highway in the west linking the country with Burundi, Kongo and Rwanda, according to a statement sent to KUNA by the Kuwaiti embassy in Dar Es Salaam yesterday. KFAED contributes to financing these mega projects.
Mohammad Al-Omairi, the Kuwaiti charge d’affaires, said the minister noted during the meeting KFAED’s role in bolstering the solid bilateral ties between Kuwait and Tanzania. He added that the Kuwaiti embassy, since its opening last year, has worked to boost the rapprochement between the two countries.
KFAED’s success in funding ventures that cannot be financed by larger funds affirms that the State of Kuwait has rightly earned the UN title, the humanitarian center, Omairi said. The delegation is visiting Tanzania to work out a loan agreement for funding the hospital and road projects.
