|What:||Webinar for the Asian Private Sector on Doing Business in Africa|
|Who:||African Development Bank|
Until the COVID-19 pandemic, Africa was the second fastest growing continent outside Asia. The continent’s growth over the past decade, has seen the longest period of unbroken increases in per capita incomes since the 1960s. Africa’s huge and highly diverse continent, has the second largest population in the world and the second largest land mass after Asia, offering tremendous investment opportunities for the Asian private sector.
The role of the private sector as a critical engine of economic growth and economic development is widely recognized. Indeed, there are local African businesses that see Asian companies as potential partners. Many Asian companies are willing to conduct business in Africa, however, they lack sufficient information about the climate and the know-how.
During this webinar, the Bank will introduce Asian audiences to the Bank’s financial products for the private sector, its non-sovereign operations and success stories of private sector participation and projects in Africa. The Bank will share information on how the Asian private sector can be involved in development projects in Africa.
This event also aims to improve the Asian private sector’s understanding of Bank projects and how to deal with them.
The webinar will be held in English, Korean, and Chinese. Simultaneous interpretation services will be available.
