The African Development Bank will hold a dissemination workshop for its Policy on Non-sovereign Operations on Monday 13 January 2020, at the Bank’s headquarters in Abidjan.

The Policy on Non-sovereign Operations, which was approved by the Board of Directors of the Bank in 2018, specifies the general framework within which the Bank, through its private sector lending window, provides financing or investment without sovereign guarantees to private and public enterprises that meet particular eligibility requirements on non-concessional terms.

Jointly conducted by the Strategy and Operational Policies (SNSP) and the Non-Sovereign Operations & Private Sector Support departments (PINS), the workshop is an opportunity for the Bank to inform participants about its policy stance on supporting private sector development in Africa through its non-sovereign operations for the next decade.

The event also aims at deepening collaboration with other development partners, governments and the private sector; and creating business-to-business (B2B) networking opportunities between the Bank’s non-sovereign operations technical experts and invited private sector players to establish partnership. 

The workshop is targeting ministries in charge of trade, industry and investments, the private sector, civil society organizations, development partners, the media and Bank staff.
