Investing in Africa Forum: Partnering to accelerate investment, industrialization, and results in Africa

The Forum will seek to promote accelerated and responsible investment and investment partnerships in African countries, from China and elsewhere, particularly for the light manufacturing sector.

Organized by the China Development Bank (CDB), the World Bank Group, the Government of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, the China-Africa Development Fund (CAD-Fund) and UNIDO, the Forum will promote a dialogue among stakeholders, including policy makers, development partners, foreign and local private investors on accelerating investment and industrialization. This will help unlock the potential for sustainable and inclusive growth, job creation and poverty reduction in African countries. 

The event will look at the business climate, trade logistics and regional initiatives in Africa, and seek to identify a forward time-bound action agenda.

Existing and potential modes of collaboration between China, African countries, development partners, and the private sector will also be discussed.
