Bono To Tour Africa

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U2 rock singer Bono will visit four African nations in May, along with U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill, to assess the efficiency of development aid and to push for greater economic productivity, the U.S. Treasury Department has said.

The African visit begins on May 20 in Ghana and will include stops in South Africa, Uganda and Ethiopia.

Treasury said O'Neill was pleased that Bono "will also be in Africa for much of this itinerary," reflecting the Irish-born singer's intense interest in increasing aid to the world's poorest countries.

O'Neill will travel to Bucharest, Romania, just before the African trip to participate in meetings of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

He concludes the African visit in Ethiopia, where the U.S. treasury chief will attend the annual meeting of the African Development Bank.

O'Neill's and Bono's African trip is to be sprinkled with visits to a variety of development projects, ranging from some aimed at improving water supplies and sanitation to HIV/AIDS treatment centres.
