Kuwait to loan TunisiaUSD17m

(MENAFN) Several healthcare projects in Kuwait have been approved by Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development (KFAED) experts and the Kuwaiti embassy after a visit to Tunisia's central coastal cities of Monastir and Sousse.

KFAED discussed a USD17 million loan agreement with Monastir officials for emergency wards across 22 Tunisian governorates - some USD530,000 of which will target the renovation of a maternity hospital in the city.

The Kuwaiti state-owned aid agency has been giving assistance to Tunisia since 1963 and is regarded one of the country's biggest contributors. Over the past three decades it has funded 33 projects worth a total KD 173 million (USD 575 million).
