Casablanca, Johannesburg, Port Louis – 18 April 2018: Africa investor (Ai), the international investment and communications group, and Africa50, the pan-African infrastructure platform, created by the African Development Bank, will co-host the 4th Ai CEO Infrastructure Project Developers Summit on June 18 in Mauritius.
This Summit will bring together CEO’s of leading project development companies, energy developers and investors, infrastructure financiers, and institutional investors. They will advance partnerships and discuss this year’s theme of Putting Financial Close First, sharing strategies for catalysing private capital for greenfield and early stage projects.
Commenting on the Summit, Hubert Danso, CEO and Vice Chairman of Africa investor said, “At last year’s CEO Developers Summit, both Presidents Macky Sall of Senegal andAmeenah Gurib-Fakim of Mauritius stressed the urgent need to attract private and institutional capital for early stage project funding and commended the Ai Developers Summit for playing a critical role in fostering deeper public-private cooperation on project development. We are therefore pleased to partner again with Africa50, the continent’s leading infrastructure investment platform.”
“There is substantial regional and global interest in African infrastructure today,” added Alain Ebobissé, CEO of Africa50. “However, one of the biggest challenges we see is that too few projects are ready to receive commercial financing. We want to encourage a greater focus on project development and the enabling environment for bankable projects, allowing modern infrastructure to be built more rapidly.”
