Invest in Africa is an initiative that aims to inspire more businesses to work in partnership with local African companies to grow markets and deliver enterprise.
Companies already operating on the continent are overwhelmingly positive about Africa’s prospects and potential. In contrast, those who don’t invest are surprisingly pessimistic. Invest in Africa will work to tackle this gap between the perception and reality of doing business in Africa.
By harnessing the first-hand experience and knowledge of the companies involved, Invest in Africa will bridge this gap by demystifying the investment process and creating new partnerships to drive both business growth and wider development.
There is now compelling evidence that investment is the most effective way to create jobs and expand prosperity and opportunity. And with Africa’s economies and demand for goods and services growing strongly, we are convinced there has never been a better time for businesses to invest than now.
Invest in Africa was initiated by Tullow Oil plc, Africa’s largest independent oil company.
