CAIRO – 4 September 2023: Afreximbank and the Administrative Capital for Urban Development signed on Thursday a contract for the former to purchase a land plant whose surface area is 50,000 square meters to build a complex that will consist of the establishment's main headquarters in Africa, African Trade Center, hotel, and convention center.
The contract, brokered by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, also provides the purchase of six other land plots to build office buildings for the bank's upper management with initial costs worth $32 million.
