AfDB, Nigerian business leaders hold meeting Tuesday in Abuja

All is set for the African Development Bank (AfDB) Group, and the Africa Finance Corporation (IFC), to meet industry and business leaders in Abuja from tomorrow.
In a statement issued by the bank in Abidjan weekend and made available to Business Hilights in Lagos, AfDB said the meeting is part of a roadshow to woo investors ahead of its second Africa Investment Forum (AIF) in November, 2019.
Otherwise, AIF; the continent’s biggest investment marketplace for accelerated economic transformation – is slated for 11-13 November 2019 in Johannesburg, South Africa. It is dedicated to advancing projects throughout Africa to bankable stages, raising capital, and accelerating the financial closure of deals.
AfDB said the Abuja roadshow targets chief executive officers, captains of industry, State governments and other key players that will re-affirm Nigeria’s investment-ready status. The event will build on the quantity and quality of deals brokered in 2018, as well as explores investment opportunities across the continent.
It added that “By convening Nigeria’s premium project sponsors, borrowers, lenders and investors, the roadshow will showcase bankable projects, attract financing, and provide platforms for investing across multiple countries”.
