AfDB approves €83m loan to Egypt's Electricity,Green Growth Programme
Programme seeks to enhance local power sector's financial sustainability, governance, and operations
Published in Daily News Egypt on 18 - 06 - 2021

The African Development Bank (AfDB) has approved an €83m loan to finance the second phase of Egypt's Electricity and Green Growth Support Programme.
The funding is part of the Bank's budget support to the Egyptian government to strengthen its electricity infrastructure, which is expected to bolster the private sector and accelerate recovery from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.
The programme seeks to enhance the power sector's financial sustainability, governance, and operations. It will also advance the provision of clean, reliable energy to drive green growth. Egypt's successful reforms in the sector have led to greater private investment in utility-scale renewable energy projects.
Egypt's Minister of International Cooperation Rania Al Mashat said, "Egypt's Vision 2030 instills the sustainability ethos across all sectors. Energy and electricity are amongst the top sectors in Egypt's International Development Cooperation's portfolio, pushing towards a green reform."
"With 2021 being the year of private sector engagement, the Electricity and Green Growth Support Programme will contribute towards sustainable growth and job creation and catalyze the development of Egyptian private entities," she added.
Malinne Blomberg, the AfDB Deputy Director General for the North Africa Region, said the Bank continues to actively engage with the Egyptian government and private sector companies to support the country's medium-term development plan and economic reforms, with a particular focus on economic infrastructure such as energy, transport, water and sanitation, as well as industrialization.
In addition to the AfDB, the French Development Agency and the Japan International Cooperation Agency have also provided financial support to Egypt's Electricity and Green Growth Support Programme.
