The was disclosed by the President of the African Development Bank, Akinwumi Adesina,  during a closed-door session between German Chancellor, Angela Merkel and heads of international development institutions.

The AfDB, in a statement titled ‘International community must act to avert a two-speed global economic recovery post-Covid-19’, quoted Adesina as saying, “The recent IMF release of $650bn in SDRs, with $27bn to Africa, will go a long way in helping to boost reserves for developing countries.

 “If the developed countries reallocate $100bn of SDRs to Africa, as agreed at the Paris leaders meeting and by the G7, that will further support faster economic recovery in Africa.”

Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, has called on the IMF, the G7, and the World Bank to help low- and middle-income nations recover from the Covid-19 problem by developing solutions.

“We have noted that the recovery after the pandemic is a two-speed recovery, which is cause for concern,” she said.
