“Morocco is a source of inspiration; a country that demonstrates that, with ambition, will, and resources, transformation can become a reality,” said Dr. Adesina. “The Kingdom is our premier partner, with a large portfolio of top-tier operations that position it as a leader in multiple domains on the continent,” he added.
On 19 July, President Adesina will attend the General Meeting of Africa50(link is external), a pan-African infrastructure fund based in Casablanca, in his dual capacity as the head of the African Development Bank Group and chair of the Board of Directors of the Fund, an initiative of the Bank.

Dr. Adesina will be accompanied by the Vice-President for Regional Development, Integration and Business Delivery, Yacine Fal, and the Vice-President for the Private Sector, Infrastructure and Industrialization, Solomon Quaynor.
The African Development Bank Group has been operating in Morocco for more than 50 years. Its portfolio is worth more than €12 billion, covering health, agriculture, energy, water, transport, human development and the financial sector.
