The French President, Emmanuel Macron, has said that the French-African summit on Tuesday, May 18, 2021, will focus on African economies trying to fill a financial void of around $300bn caused by the Cotonavirus Disease.
Macron said this at the end of Monday’s session of the ongoing summit.
He said, “The reduction of Sudanese debt that we will soon begin is a first result. It is important that this trajectory of Sudan’s return to the concert of nations be reinforced at the economic and political levels.”
On Monday, the focus of the conference was to rally support for Sudan.
At the event, the Sudanese Prime Minister, Abdalla Hamdok, said, “I can’t stress enough the need to build a productive economy that would ensure growth and job creation, as creating jobs for our young people is one of the top priorities.
“We would like to create those opportunities for our young talent to stay in the country and build it with us, rather than taking this extremely difficult and dangerous journey across the Mediterranean. We are losing these young talents and our future, not only now,” he said.
