World Bank Group President Robert B. Zoellick said, â€œSovereign wealth funds hold an estimated $3 trillion in assets. If the World Bank Group can help create the platforms and benchmarks, the investment of even one percent of their assets would draw $30 billion to African growth, development, and opportunity.â€ There will be a special focus on Sovereign Wealth Funds as they seek to invest vast amounts of capital in the telecom sector.
While there is an increased competition in the telecom sector in Africa today, there is an untapped potential which still exists. â€œAfrica is a Goldmine as far as telecom investments are concernedâ€
