Second Africa Investment Forum Takes Off Today In South Africa

African leaders have arrived in Johannesburg, South Africa, to attend the 2nd Edition of the Africa Investment Forum from today, Monday 11th to 13th November 2019.

The Forum, organized by the African Development Bank and its partners, is the largest multi-stakeholder and multi-disciplinary marketplace in the world, aimed at raising capital, advancing projects to bankable stage, and accelerating financial closure of deals.

At this year’s forum, the Bank’s energy team will engage sector stakeholders in extensive consultations, knowledge exchange, networking, and peer-to-peer learning to address barriers to mobilizing and scaling-up private investment into the energy sector. During various boardroom sessions, we will focus on a range of projects, including the Inga Dam in the DRC, the Baynes hydro plant in Angola and Namibia, and the Tulu Moye geothermal development in Ethiopia.

Throughout the discussions, investors and stakeholders will be better able to understand market dynamics, policy, and regulatory frameworks, while learning first-hand about the details and potential of bankable projects, and what needs to be done to speed up financial close.
