The African Development Bank (AfDB) has called on global investors to tap into several investment opportunities on the continent.
This appeal came from the President of the AfDB, Akinwunmi Adesina at the African Investment Forum at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa,
Adesina noted that “This is not an event. It is a platform where governments, the private sector, investors, and project promoters come together.
“We develop quality bankable projects, de-risk them and actually make sure it happens.
“We are committed to fast track development. We know countries do not develop from aid but by the discipline of investment.
“We require broad-based partnerships and collective effort with the private sector and institutional investors.”
