    Background: The eight annual meeting of the Council of Governors of the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA) was held in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum. The meeting was attended by Arab and African Finance Ministers, officials from the Arab League, the Organisation of African Unity and representatives of Arab and Islamic aid agencies. Part of Thursday's (29 April) agenda included discussion on the bank's policy for 1982 and to hear a report on activities. The Saudi Finance Minister, Sheikh Mohammed Abal-Khail accused industrialised nations of lagging behind Arab countries in providing economic assistance to African states.

In his address to the meeting, Sudan's President Jaafar Nimeiri, praised what he called 'BADEA's positive role in strengthening Afro-Arab co-operation in various fields".
