Juba, December 26, 2018 (SSNA) — The Egypt-based African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) has signed an agreement with Securiport SUARL, a Senegal-based airport security entity, to construct a new security system for a facility at Juba’s International Airport, the South Sudan News Agency (SSNA) has learned.

The bank says in a statement obtained by the SSNA that it signed “a financing agreement with Securiport SUARL, Senegal, to provide Securiport with a $15-million term loan to finance the design, construction and commissioning of a civil aviation and immigration security system for the Juba International Airport in South Sudan.”

The facility, according to the bank, will assist the young nation “to modernize equipment and systems at the Juba International Airport, leveraging on future flows of airline fees.”

The African Export-Import Bank is the foremost pan-African multilateral financial institution devoted to financing and promoting intra- and extra-African trade, according to its mission statement.
