Amit Jain, Director of NTU-SBF Centre for African Studies makes a compelling presentation on why Africa should be considered a market of hope and opportunity, not despair and despondency in this webinar organised by the Singapore Business Federation.
The NTU-SBF Centre for African Studies holds a virtual presentation where the African Development Bank (AfDB) will showcase a list of 32 bankable projects that need private sector investments. Sectors include agriculture, energy, infrastructure, healthcare, hospitality, ICT, logistics and natural resources.
The African Development Bank (AfDB) joins hands with the NTU- SBF Centre for African Studies to conduct a virtual ‘roundtable’ with key stakeholders in Asia and Africa to help unpack the challenge of raising agricultural productivity, mitigate risks and promote the development of agricultural value chains.
Africa requires anything between US$68bn to US$108bn in finance to bridge its infrastructure deficit. Securing private sector funding has never been as challenging as it is now. Lack of sufficient information on investment opportunities, coupled with the perception of high risks also contributes to the challenge. The NTU-SBF Centre for African Studies and the African Union Development Agency-NEPAD discuss how you can invest in Africa's infrastructure.
