PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa is in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire attending the African Investment Forum, which kicked off this Wednesday.
He arrived in the West African country late Tuesday night.
The Africa Investment Forum is the continent’s investment marketplace, championed by the African Development Bank and its partners to accelerate investments in member countries.
The multi-stakeholder, multi-disciplinary platform is being attended by several heads of state and business stakeholders from across Africa, with a focus on advancing projects to bankable stages, raising capital and accelerating the financial closure of deals.
The African Development Bank is providing advisory services to direct more funding and investments into the continent’s critical sectors and help countries achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and developmental targets as enunciated in the Agenda 2063.
President Mnangagwa is expected to hold high-level meetings with his counterparts on the continent and development financiers, as the ‘Zimbabwe is Open for Business’ mantra continues to take route.
