AfDB, Nigerian business leaders meet Tuesday ahead investment forum

The African Development Bank (AfDB) will meet with Nigerian business leaders on Tuesday ahead of this year’s Africa Investment Forum (AIF). The AIF – the continent’s biggest investment marketplace for accelerated economic transformation – is slated for November 11 to 13 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

A press release signed by one of the AfDB’s spokespersons, Fatimah Abubakar Alkali, said the meeting which will take place in Transcorp Hilton, Abuja, is aimed at wooing investors ahead of this year’s second AIF.

It targets chief executive officers, captains of industry, state governments and other key players that will re-affirm Nigeria’s investment-ready status, the release said.

The meeting will build on the quantity and quality of deals brokered in 2018, as well as explore investment opportunities across the continent, it added. “By convening Nigeria’s premium project sponsors, borrowers, lenders and investors, the road show will showcase bankable projects, attract financing, and provide platforms for investing across multiple countries”, the AfDB release said.
