The Canadian-African Opportunity.
These are really exciting times for Canadian-African Relations. From the Canadian Government’s push to promote its Blended Finance Initiative for emerging markets, to the rapidly growing interest in the Frontier markets, there is no doubt that Canada is leaning towards the African Rising narrative.
This week, Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina, President of African Development Bank (AfDB), was in Canada to meet with Key public and private sector investors and stakeholders in the African markets… it was an enlightening session on how Leaders max opportunities and define the moment. As Dr. Adesina unveiled his dream of African Investment Forum-AIF , I could not help but wonder why its taken Africa this long to propose solutions such as AIF, to its “infrastructure deficit” issue . The Q & A session was most interactive for Investors. Critical risks factors were also addressed by AfDB. The great news is that Africa is rising.
