How to benefit from the External Investment Plan

Sustainable Investment in Africa
Pavillon Zambeze
16:00 to 17:00

This session will highlight the operating principles of the European External Investment Programme (EIP) and encourage participants to take advantage of its opportunities. It will also present a key element of the EIP - the innovative European Fund for Sustainable Development (EFSD) Guarantee. This new EU risk mitigation mechanism aims to stimulate investments in Africa, particularly from private investors.
Key questions to be addressed are:

  • How can entrepreneurs in Africa and the EU can get involved in the EIP?
  • What are the main business benefits of the EIP?
  • Are there any potential guarantee products under the EFSD guarantee?
