Finance (African Development (Bank and Fund) and Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2018: Committee and Remaining Stages
We had a Second Stage debate on this on Tuesday. I thank the Minister of State and all his officials. It is a positive step for Ireland to be involved with this and I hope it will benefit the African continent and Ireland's involvement there. It is a two-way relationship and Ireland has a very strong history in helping and being involved with the African continent. I hope this will support the relationship over time. I commend the Minister of State and his Department on this work. I hope it will proceed successfully in the coming years.
