Infrastructure and agriculture are recognized as key components of Africa’s transformation. Governments and development partners have boosted their engagement in these sectors over the past 15 years, yet there remains a funding gap. Private sector investment, innovation and expertise can help bridge this gap. Join us to discuss how to mitigate risk and mobilize investment in infrastructure, and to explore how Africa can transition from traditional agriculture to agribusiness. IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, along with the government of Kenya, the government of Japan, the African Union Commission, the Africa Development Bank, the Kenya Private Sector Alliance and other partners have organized this event.
