Buhari To Attend 4th Africa-Arab Summit In Malabo

BUHARI-621x441Pres. Muhammadu Buhari will attend the 4th Africa-Arab Summit in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, on November 23. The summit, which will be attended by Heads of State and Governments from Gulf and African countries, is expected to endorse the Malabo Declaration and Action Working Plan for 2017-2019 to promote trade and economic ties.

The two-year plan seeks to implement priority projects in trade, investment, transportation, communication and energy in Africa. He said, “In Malabo, President Buhari is also expected to hold discussions with Arab leaders aimed to review agreements to strengthen partnerships that bolster agriculture and infrastructure development in Nigeria through long term concessionary loans and technological skills transfer.”

President would also explore the opportunity of getting support for the ongoing fight against Boko Haram and the humanitarian situation in the North East. The summit is jointly organised by the African Union Commission and the League of Arab States. It focuses on promoting development by strengthening trade, investment, transport, communication and energy among Gulf and African states.
