Business Opportunities Seminars (BOS) are conducted in member countries or at Tunis to present the business opportunities arising out of financing by the Bank Group. Presentations focus mainly on the overview of Bank group policies and operations; procurement rules and procedures and on-going and potential country operations. This is aimed at increasing the participation of the benefiting country’s business community in the Bank group financed operations and other public-private partnership activities in Africa.
The request for the BOS usually emanates from member countries through the offices of the Executive Directors, key Ministries, Finance Foreign affairs, recognised business associations, Chamber of Commerce etc.
Participants of the BOS are typically members of the business community (individual consultants/consulting companies, suppliers of goods) in the country.
