London, 20 May 2014: His Excellency John Mahama, President of the Republic of Ghana, will be one of a number of African leaders who will converge on London in October to meet with global investors and project developers at the inaugural Global African Investment Summit.
The Global African Investment Summit is designed specifically to present global investors with bankable projects in Africa. Representatives of some of the biggest asset managers and pension funds, who are looking to increase their exposure to Africa’s emerging markets, will meet with H.E. Mahama and senior representatives from relevant ministries and parastatals.
‘The aim is to catalyse investment into Africa through a trusted forum that focuses on real opportunities,’ said Paul Sinclair, Director of The Global African Investment Summit.
‘If you want to attract the world’s best investors you have to profile your country on the world stage. London, as a global financial hub, presents the perfect location for African governments to meet and discuss with investors from across the globe.’ Mr Sinclair added.
H.E. Mahama will be joined by the Presidents of Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda and President Olusegun Obasanjo, former leader of Nigeria, as the heads of the formal government delegations. The Global African Investment Summit will provide the opportunity for the governments to attract investors into key sectors including agribusiness, power, natural resources and transport infrastructure.
‘Investors from across the world will be looking at these projects; African governments will be seeking those partners who can bring the most value to their countries in terms of funds, expertise, technology and job creation. Leveraging the power of the global market creates a win-win for African governments seeking to secure maximum benefits for their countries.’ Mr Sinclair concluded.
