National policies and international investment agreements are important framework conditions for stimulating investments. A good investment climate is central to growth and poverty reduction. A vibrant private sector creates jobs, provides the goods and services needed to improve living standards, and contributes taxes necessary for public investment in health, education, and other services.  Only too often governments stunt the size of those contributions by creating unjustified risks, costs, and barriers to competition. It is a widely held view that some of the African governments are partly to blame for the lack sufficient investment in the continent.


Additional Information

The aim of the Africa Investment Climate Conference will be to examine the broader investment climate of Africa and review some of the bottlenecks that discourage investment and provide solutions and steps Africa has to take to stimulate sustainable investment in the continent. A significant number of African and foreign government representatives will attend to share views. You view and input is important, let us learn from each other.
