Egypt to host African Investment Forum next month

In February, Egypt will host the first African Investment Forum to discuss how to accelerate private sector engagement and investment within Africa and help develop new ties and partnerships, as well as highlight the African opportunity.

The Forum, initiated by the Egyptian Agency of Partnership for Development (EAPD), aims to reflect on the African opportunity, as well as putting to practice the African integration story.

“The aim of the Forum, as well as discussing some of the most pressing issues in Africa today, is to encourage as much B2B interaction. We know that Africa offers the highest rate of return of any region in the world. However, too often, the African private sector is not taking advantage of this opportunity outside of their borders. We aim to change this,” Heba Salama, head of the Regional Investment Agency, said in a statement.

The program will have a big focus on boosting intra-Africa trade and investment by developing new and strategic public and private sector alliances.

About 1,000 delegates are expected to attend the Forum.

Investment promotion agencies from all over Africa will also be showcasing both public and private investment opportunities and projects that are seeking partners, it stated.
