More Than a Billion Dollars’ Worth of Projects to be Financed at the Africa CEO Forum 2019

Flash back: Panelists at Africa CEO Forum 2016

March 24, 2019//-Every year, through tailored meetings and discussions, the AFRICA CEO FORUM enables African governments to present their investment opportunities – in particular Public-Private Partnership projects – to showcase their “ease of doing business” reforms and also to develop business relationships with a large number of investors and business leaders.

 From Zambia, to Morocco, Togo, Mauritius, Benin, Mali, Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda: on the occasion of this year’s “Public-Private Dealrooms”, large delegations from across the continent will be presenting investment projects with a cumulative value of over $500 million in promising growth sectors.

The “Private sector Dealrooms” – an innovative feature of the AFRICA CEO FORUM 2019 – will enable 30 high-potential African companies to meet with investors who are interested in financing their growth. With an average annual turnover of $50 million, the 30 promising companies selected come from all regions of Africa and are looking for financing packages worth 25 to 100 million euros.

Financial services, real estate, tourism, health, manufacturing, energy, agriculture, ICT: nearly $700 million worth of promising projects in sectors of key importance for Africa’s economic growth will be presented at these individual meetings with carefully selected investors. The latter will include bankers, pension funds, private equity players and the most active international financial institutions on the continent.

Developed in collaboration with Asoko Insights, this new meeting format reflects the AFRICA CEO FORUM’s mission to facilitate meetings and transactions between private decision-makers and investors who are active in Africa.

Instructively, the AFRICA CEO FORUM has been the largest international gathering of African private sector decision-makers and financiers.

At its previous edition in Abidjan in March 2018, it brought together 1,500 business leaders, public decision-makers and investors from Africa and around the world for two days of discussions around the need to transform African champions in the face of international competition.

The Forum is organized by Jeune Afrique Media Group, publisher of Jeune Afrique and The Africa Report, and by Rainbow Unlimited, a Swiss company specializing in the organization of economic promotion events.
