Sweden funds poverty alleviation programme

Sweden will provide Burkina Faso with the sum of 2.8 billion Fcfa (about US
$ 4 million) for a poverty alleviation programme under an agreement the two
countries signed on Tuesday. The agreement is the first between Burkina Faso and Sweden since the launch in July 2000 of a strategic anti-poverty
framework worked out by the Burkinabe government, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
