The African
Development Bank (AfDB) Group has more than doubled its soft-loan
window funding for Malawi, the Bank Group's President, Donald Kaberuka,
said in Lilongwe, Malawi, on Wednesday.

our new soft loan lending cycle (2008-10), Malawi will receive a
significant allocation -- more than doubling its level of previous
resources to just under US$ 200 million," Mr. Kaberuka said at the
official opening of the AfDB Malawi Country Office.

He also called on the Malawian
parliament to endorse the AfDB's budget support facility for Malawi,

"For our part, we will continue to be

Kaberuka told dignitaries at the ceremony.

Addressing the audience, Malawi Finance Minister, Goodall Gondwe, described the increase in the allocation as "enormous'.

however, urged the AfDB to relax some of its funding regulations to
help ensure that the funding was more readily available to Malawi.

AfDB Group currently has nine operations worth US$ 170 million in
Malawi. The operations are mainly in the economic and social sectors,
including rural infrastructure.

The AfDB also provides budgetary support to the Government of Malawi.
