Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire | Virtual

The Africa Investment Forum will showcase transformative investment opportunities across the African continent, many of which hold the potential to drive Africa’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

About Market Days

Market Days 2021 will be held in a hybrid format. There will be boardroom sessions, where deals are agreed among those physically present, while other attendees will participate virtually.

Discussions at Market Days 2021 will focus on many different sectors, notably:

  • agriculture and agro-processing;
  • energy and climate;
  • health;
  • ICT and telecommunication; and
  • industrialization and trade.

These are all sectors prioritized under the Africa Investment Forum’s Unified Response to COVID-19 initiative, launched in 2020.  

Boardroom sessions, where deals are finalized, will feature projects that: 

  1. are women-led;
  2. are in Africa’s creative industries; and
  3. promote financial, economic, and social sustainability.
