Thank you very much for the comment/questions. On the first question, while several African countries initiated programs on protecting property rights and improving land registration systems, nothing close to Russia, of course, for obvious reasons. Some countries made progress, notably Rwanda, who completed registration of property rights. But, they need to improve the entire system, including improving service delivery and to put in place other critical policies and a legal framework so that the citizens can benefit from improved security of rights. On the second, the World Bank provided around US$ 100 million in funding and also provided continuous technical support and facilitated knowledge exchanges between Russia and other countries – especially western Europe.
