“Altogether, and including the IMF funds, World Bank and AfDB support, we expect multilateral support of about $2.0 billion for 2023 and $6.2 billion between 2023 and 2026. We expect the World Bank to provide a total support of $1.6 billion, whilst the AfDB provides a total support of $200 million over the programme period”, he said.
