Bangladesh donates $7.66 million to debt-ridden Sudan
Bangladesh government has donated about US$ 7.66 million to debt-ridden Sudan, a member country of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
The government provided the money on Tuesday following the call of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), a press release of the finance ministry said today.
The government hopes that this funding as debt relief will further strengthen Sudan's struggle for poverty alleviation, it said.
Last year, as part of the IMF's initiative, Bangladesh also provided more than Tk 8 crore, equivalent to an SDR of 0.70 million, to alleviate poverty in the African country of Somalia.
