Akenomy Adssena، Governor of the African Development Bank (ADB)، said that Egypt، led by President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi، plays a pivotal role in sustaining the economic and business ties among the African nations. He pointed out to the importance of the mega national projects in Egypt، especially developing the Suez Canal corridor and ports on both the Red and Mediterranean Seas. He affirmed that those projects will increase volume of trade between the West and the East. This will reflect positively on Egypt and Africa. The senior African banker added that his institution supports Egypt. He assured that Egypt was keen to organize 2018 Africa Forum. A host of African leaders and pioneers of business were invited to that forum.
