‘Africa Investment Forum will be heavy on deals’
The Africa Investment Forum will be short on talk and heavy on deals, the South African Government, the African Development Bank (AfDB) and key partners affirmed at a press conference ahead of the 2019 edition of the event.
Organised by AfDB and partners, the second edition of the Forum will take place from November 11 to 13 2019 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The multi-stakeholder transactional marketplace is aimed at raising capital, advancing projects to bankable stage and accelerating financial closure of deals.
“Last year, we achieved remarkable results with over $ 36 billion of investments interests that were signed or being were closed. We are hoping that this year it is going to be even better,” said Vuyelwa Vumendlini, Deputy Director General of the National Treasury of South Africa.
