Invest Africa - Foreign Direct Investment [GB-1-205226]

Department for International Development

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. Depending on the success of Invest Africa this will result in between £400 million to £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 build up a significant pipeline of investments to ‘kick-start’ manufacturing and create jobs in Africa whilst systemically addressing country specific barriers and capacity constraints around FDI which will open the door to increased longer term investment.
