Association of African Development Finance Institutions

Tuesday, 26 May 2015 – 19:00 – 22:00

Description :
The main objective of the AADFI Dinner will be to show the role that State and non-State actors can play in addressing constraints that impact negatively on resource mobilization, trade and foreign direct investment (both intra and extra African FDI). The event will strive to raise awareness on the range of instruments available to RMCs and firms and could be harnessed to increase cross-border trade. It will also suggest solutions aimed at managing and/or improving the high risk perception (both trade & investment) of African markets by international financiers with a special focus on the role of regional DFIs in facilitating.

Venue : Pavillon Restaurant, Sofitel Abidjan Hôtel Ivoire   

Issues for Discussion :
Discussions will focus on the entry of international insurers and financiers into African markets; bridging and filling gaps in financial and insurance capacity; and to raise awareness of the Bank’s Trade Finance Programme, its objectives and roll out plan.

Rapporteur : Mr. Stefan Nalletamby, Director, Financial Sector Development Department, AfDB


It is important to remember that the so-called “New Africa” is made up of 54 countries in five regions. Africa is not a single monolithic whole. The only safe generalisation is that Africa is planning, managing and starting to finance its own destiny.

Donald Kaberuka, AfDB President
