The Africa Investment Forum Market Days will take place as scheduled from 8-10 November 2023 at the Palais des Congrès in Marrakech, Morocco.
The Bank and the Moroccan government are working closely to ensure the success of the event without disrupting the reconstruction efforts that have been ongoing since the devastating earthquake in the country on 8 September 2023.
In a joint statement the Bank said it was committed to providing the government with resources and expertise to assist in rebuilding infrastructure in affected communities.
“The African Development Bank Group continues to stand in solidarity with the Government and the people of Morocco and commend their resilience in the face of this tragedy,” it said.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those who lost loved ones and property in the earthquake, it added.
