The African Development Bank is providing a loan of $85 million towards the modernisation of Rabat-Salé airport in Morocco.

The project financed by the African Development Bank will also strengthen the competitiveness and attractiveness of the area, enabling it to respond to the increase in air traffic, which is booming economically.

On this edition of Business Africa, Leila Farah Mokaddem, representative of the African Development Bank in Rabat, Morocco, explains.
