The Crown Prince has stated that Saudi Arabia will support Africa with investments and loans worth about $1 billion this year to help their economies recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman made this statement virtually during a speech at a debt relief conference in Paris

The projects will be carried out by the Saudi Fund for Development (SFD).

Last year’s Saudi-hosted G20 Summit launched initiatives to support the African economy while the SFD offered loans to African countries.

“We are aiming that this summit concludes with solutions to the debts of African countries,” the crown prince said.

 

Saudi, he added, has offered loans and grants to more than 45 African countries.
