(Ecofin Agency) - The Comorian government will meet with several financial partners in Paris next month. The Indian Ocean archipelago seeks to mobilize €4.5 billion ($5 billion) in investments for several projects mainly in tourism and infrastructure sectors.
The announcement was made on Tuesday by the Economy Minister Houmed Msaidie (pictured), during an interview with Bloomberg. The operation comes a few months after the re-election of President Azali Assoumani, who had announced his intention to make tourism one of the country's new growth mainstays.
These investments, which will be provided in the form of loans or grants, are mainly aimed at diversifying the economy of the archipelago, which is strongly dominated by horticultural exports.
