The Association of African Development Finance Institutions (AADFI) is pleased to announce the 2017 CEO Forum of African Development Finance Institutions which will hold from November 8-10, 2017 at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja, Nigeria. The 2017 CEO Forum is being hosted by the Bank of Industry (BoI), Nigeria.
The CEO Forum of African DFI is part of the annual activities of the Association of African Development Finance Institutions (AADFI) initiated in the year 2000. The Forum is a high level gathering of Chief Executives, Senior Executive Management of African DFIs and key stakeholders in development financing, real sector development, Investors and Project Financiers, Central Banks and Supervisory Authorities of DFIs, and other lending institutions to discuss development financing issues and how to scale up financing to achieve inclusive sustainable development in African countries.
Discuss current trends in the global DFI environment
Discuss innovative financing mechanism and options for mobilizing resources for development projects
Develop and strengthen partnership for cross-border investment promotion & financing, and mobilization of resources
Support effort aimed at promoting inclusive socio-economic development in the continents through cooperation among DFIs
Provide opportunity to engage DFI supervisory authorities and DFI community on the need to deepen DFIs’ activities and make them more relevant in achieving development goals at the national and sub-national levels.
You will agree with me that Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) will continue to occupy center stage in recent efforts to scale up financing of projects toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in our various countries. As an important catalyst for development, DFIs are expected to mobilize and channel resources towards bridging the current huge financing gaps for development projects on the continent.more
