Africa’s development needs will require between $200 billion and $1.2 trillion yearly


Dr Adesina, President of the African Development Bank

There is an urgent need to bridge the gap between Africa’s available capital and bankable projects.

Although brimming with investment opportunities, financing Africa’s development needs will require between $200 billion and $1.2 trillion yearly. Of this, about $130-$170 billion a year is needed for infrastructure, according to data by the African Development Bank.

The Bank is working with other multilateral development partners and stakeholders to ensure that the Africa Investment Forum becomes the continent’s key springboard for investment to meet the massive infrastructure and development needs.

Like the previous edition, the 2019 Forum will bring together project sponsors, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, private investors, policy makers, private equity firms, and heads of government to advance Africa’s economic transformation agenda.

The inaugural edition broke the mold for investment in Africa.

It featured some 63 projects from across 24 countries and seven sectors valued at $46.9 billion.
