Ahead of the second Africa Investment Forum (AIF) taking place in November this year, the African Development Bank Group (AfDB) will hold a crucial meeting with some business leaders in Abuja, on Monday, July 9, 2019.
This meeting, which is being facilitated by the financial institution and the Africa Finance Corporation (AFC), is fixed for 8:30am at the prestigious Transcorp Hilton, Abuja, and is part of a roadshow to woo investors ahead of the forthcoming programme.
AIF is the continent’s biggest investment marketplace for accelerated economic transformation and will take place from November 11-13, 2019 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
It is dedicated to advancing projects throughout Africa to bankable stages, raising capital, and accelerating the financial closure of deals.
The Abuja roadshow targets chief executive officers, captains of industry, State governments and other key players that will re-affirm Nigeria’s investment-ready status.
A statement from AfDB said the event will build on the quantity and quality of deals brokered in 2018, as well as explore investment opportunities across the continent.
By convening Nigeria’s premium project sponsors, borrowers, lenders and investors, the roadshow will showcase bankable projects, attract financing, and provide platforms for investing across multiple countries.
The AfDB Group is Africa’s premier development finance institution comprising three distinct entities: AfDB, the African Development Fund (ADF) and the Nigeria Trust Fund (NTF).
The bank, which has presence in 41 African countries with an external office in Japan, contributes to the economic development and the social progress of its 54 regional member states.
