Facilitating Investments within the Framework of the G20 Compact with Africa Initiative
The African investment landscape is changing rapidly and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) with its bilateral partners – Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana and Tunisia – within the framework of the G20 Compact with Africa Initiative are shifting into top gear. Pitching for investment in this session, representatives of the three countries will discuss attractive investment opportunities with representatives from international organisations, business and BMZ, along with current reform efforts and the need for targeted assistance.
Reflecting on how these changes impact the sectors, the pitch will outline the new dynamics of investing in Africa as well as tangible opportunities at the project level:
- Amid reforms and assistance supported by BMZ within the framework of the G20-Compact with Africa Initiative, how have investment conditions changed in Ghana, Côte d'Ivoire and Tunisia?
- Where and what are the promising sectors and projects today?
- Which investment projects best reflect the new dynamics of investing in Africa?
