As one of the founders of the AIF, Afreximbank will attend plenary sessions mostly related to the attainment of the goals of the Africa Continental Free Trade Area agreement, as well as participating in high level boardroom sessions showcasing projects, and signing deals on the sidelines of the event. Afreximbank is also meeting with Heads of State and Governments as well as investors and captains of industry.
Afreximbank aims to showcasethe various investment opportunities available across the continent, fast track the execution and implementation of projects presented and deepen collaboration and forge strategic partnerships between various industry players in the public and private sectors.
Since its inception in 2018, the Africa Investment Forum platform has mobilized investment interests in excess of US$100 billion and facilitated the close of 10 financial transactions.
Kapital Afrik intends to deliver strategic financial information to executives and managers, through a daily newsletter and a website that covers all African finance.
