The Gauteng Province in South Africa has endorsed the African Development Bank’s 2018 Africa Investment Forum (AIF) as a world-class initiative that is uniquely positioned to transform the continent’s development landscape.
Gauteng Province will host the Bank’s inaugural forum from November 7-9, 2018 in Johannesburg.
Speaking after a high-level meeting with the African Development Bank President, Akinwumi Adesina, in Johannesburg, the Premier of the host Province, David Makhura, said,
“The Africa Investment Forum is more than a Forum. We in Africa are tired of talks about investment after which nothing happens.
“The African Development Bank is doing a great job working with other multilateral development partners, private equity funds, the private sector, and governments to crowd in investment into our continent.
Gauteng is ready and excited to host the event here in Johannesburg.”
