The French government’s development agency, the Agence Française de Développement (AFD), is keen to increase its assistance to Bangladesh in order for it to realize its long-term goal of being a developed nation by the year 2041.
According to AFD Executive Director Phillipe Orliange, who recently expressed the French Development Agency’s willingness, realizing the ambition will require significant development and long-term investment. He noted that Bangladesh’s ownership of its development strategy is very solid, which is essential to the strategy’s success and fosters trust among development partners.
The French government’s financial agency, AFD, presently operates in 110 countries with an annual commitment of about 12 billion euros, with the majority of that amount going to Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
