Africa Investment Forum to host third Market Days in Abidjan, December 1-3, 2021

(AfDB) - The Africa Investment Forum will hold its 2021 Market Days in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, from the 1-3 of December 2021. The annual business gathering will showcase transformative investment opportunities across the African continent, many of which hold the potential to drive Africa’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Invited participants to this third edition, including investors, project sponsors and decision-makers, will be presented with a pipeline of deals that are ready for investment. Market Days 2021 will be held in a hybrid format. There will be boardroom sessions, where deals are agreed among those physically present, while other attendees will participate virtually.

Discussions at Market Days 2021 will focus on many different sectors, notably: agriculture and agro-processing; energy and climate; health; ICT and telecommunication; and industrialization and trade. These are all sectors prioritized under the Africa Investment Forum’s Unified Response to Covid-19 initiative, launched in 2020.  

Boardroom sessions, where deals are finalized, will feature projects that: (1) are women-led; (2) are in Africa’s creative industries; and (3) promote financial, economic, and social sustainability.

We look forward to welcoming investors to join us in Abidjan – and virtually around the world – to take the next step in Africa’s growth,” said Dr. Akinwumi A. Adesina, President of the African Development Bank. “To achieve this growth, however, and to bounce back to pre-pandemic levels, Africa will need significant financial support. As an example. the whole of Sub-Saharan Africa will need $425 billion in additional gross financing by 2030,” he added.
