The African Development Bank (“AfDB” or “the Bank”) is the premier pan-African development institution, promoting economic growth and social progress across the continent. There are 80 member states, including 54 in Africa (Regional Member Countries or RMC). The Bank’s development agenda is delivering financial and technical support for transformative projects that will significantly reduce poverty through inclusive and sustainable economic growth. In order to sharply focus the objectives of the Ten Year Strategy (2013 –2022) and ensure greater developmental impact, five major areas, all of which will accelerate the Bank’s delivery for Africa, have been identified for scaling up, namely; Light up and Power Africa, Feed Africa, Industrialise Africa, Integrate Africa and Improve the quality of life for the people of Africa.The Vice Presidency for Private Sector, Infrastructure and Industrialization (PIVP) is central to the Bank’s mission of developing the private sector, improving infrastructure and accelerating industrialization.

PIVP leads the implementation of the Industrialize Africa High 5 while playing a leading role in collaboration with RDVP on the Integrate Africa High 5. The complex’s main functions are to (i) strengthen the enabling environment for private sector development, conducive to inclusive growth and sustainable development, (ii) support the development of reliable and sustainable infrastructure, including urban development, (iii) place renewed emphasis on industrial and trade performance in support of structural transformation across Africa, and (iv) drive the Bank’s financial sector development agenda. The Complex leads the Bank’s Non-sovereign operations in these areas, as well as selected complex sovereign operations. The Complex leverages knowledge, co-financing, and partnerships to attract private capital and work with governments on delivering the Bank’s development agenda
