The 2018 Africa Investment Forum held in Johannesburg, South Africa from Wednesday 7th of November to Friday 9th of November. The forum served as a medium through which project sponsors, borrowers, lenders, public and private sector investors came together to accelerate Africa’s investment opportunities.

The African Development Bank which champions the forum is dedicated to advancing projects to bankable stages, raising capital, and accelerating the financial closure of deals.

Many deals were sealed during the forum alongside the signing of various MoUs such as a Trade and Development Bank MoU with USAID to power Africa, African Development Bank and Moroccan agency’s partnership to roll out the Desert to Power Initiative etc.
