A word about the Africa Investment Forum:
AIF is a multidisciplinary transactional platform, created by the African Development Bank (ADB), to stimulate funding in practical ways, and thus meet in concrete terms the challenges facing Africa. This opportunity for encounter and introduction is the rallying point where project sponsors, public partners, financial institutions and private investors converge in a bid to rollout projects in Africa.
