► Support to the productive sector [+]

To support the productive sector, AFD funds projects that aim to improve the country's competitiveness in many sectors such as textiles, agriculture, tourism and broadcasting.

► Vocational training [+]

In a country where the population is very young, and where the qualifications of graduates did not quite correspond to the labor market, vocational training is a key issue. AFD is financing the creation of a training center for the textile trade and plans to support a similar project for the tourism sector. AFD could also support the Ministry of Labor and Vocational Training to adapt its policy in this area as well as the modalities of implementation in provinces to bring training provision to the private sector needs.
