Sudan clears World Bank debt
By Reuters | March 27th 2021
Sudan has settled its debts with the World Bank after nearly three decades, paving the way for the country to access nearly $2 billion (Sh218 billion) in grants from the International Development Association, the bank said.
World Bank President David Malpass said yesterday the move marked a breakthrough for Sudan, putting it on the path to substantial debt relief and economic revival.
The payment was made possible through a $1.15 billion bridge loan from the US government.
Sudan’s finance minister Gibril Ibrahim said clearance of the arrears would enable the country to move forward with development projects.
