The Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo is attending the African Investment Forum, organised by the African Development Bank (AfDB), at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Dubbed by organizers of the event as the “collective deal of the century for investment in and the development of Africa,” the forum focuses on advancing projects to bankable stages, raising capital and accelerating the financing of key projects and deals.
Organisers say the forum is aimed at attracting multi-billion-dollar deals across the continent and is set to usher in a new era for Africa’s investment landscape. The Government of South Africa, the African Development Bank, and several multi-lateral development partners are hosting the Forum, a key springboard for investment in the continent expected to become an annual event.
