RABAT, May 25 (Xinhua) -- The African Development Bank has approved 57 million euros (about 60.7 million U.S. dollars) as an additional loan to finance the ongoing construction of the Nador West Med Port complex in northern Morocco, official RIM radio reported Wednesday.

The bank granted 113 million euros in 2015 for the same infrastructure project, which is expected to be completed in December 2024.
