The finance ministers will discuss economic problems in Africa's development, how to increase the effectiveness of aid to the poorest countries and how to assist countries burdened with huge debts.

The Russian minister will hold a series of bilateral working meetings.

Alexei Kudrin is to return to Moscow on Sunday morning.
