Prime Minister Dr Abiy Ahmed has held virtual discussion with African Heads of State and leading African businesses.
In a Twitter post, the Prime Minister described the discussion as productive.
“Fruitful follow-up deliberations with members of the Bureau of the Assembly of the AU, other Heads of State, and more than 20 leading African businesses on the role of the private sector in COVID19 responsiveness,” he said.
The Prime Minister commended the commitment of African Development Bank, Africa Exim Bank and other private stakeholders to contribute to the Africa COVID fund and the Africa Center for Disease Control.
He finally said “Strengthening the Africa CDC and enhancing our testing capacity as a continent is crucial.”
