The Invest Africa initiative will help drive the economic transformation needed to create jobs for the future and set countries on a trajectory out of poverty. It is expected to generate £1bn of new Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in manufacturing (including agro-processing and high value services) sectors in Africa. It will do this by working with African Governments and international companies to facilitate new investments (e.g. by developing the business case for firms to undertake investment, or by supporting their negotiations with Government) and by addressing sector specific barriers preventing those particular investments from taking place .
