On the sidelines of a meeting with the Economic Commission of the Council of Ministers, Hafez Ghanem stressed that this new financial support that the WB will grant to Angola results from the trust in the programs that are being implemented by the Government.

During the meeting, the Angolan economic team and WB Vice-President Hafez Ghanem also discussed issues related to the WB's support for agriculture and how the agricultural sector can grow, and discussed how the Bank can provide support to the mining sector.
