In Kigali, Rwanda’s capital, the president of the Brazil Africa Institute (IBRAF), João Bosco Monte, met with representatives of the World Bank under the leadership of Hafez Ghanem, the Organization’s vice president for Africa. The meeting took place in parallel with the “Africa Food Security Leadership Dialogue” event, in which the IBRAF president attended.
During the meeting were discussed cooperation actions between World Bank and IBRAF, especially in identifying business opportunities between Brazilian and African companies, and youth technical training. Thus, it was agreed that both organizations will define how collaborative actions will be applied.
