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.
The programme is to help countries improve their capacity to diagnose growth constraints. A part of this is to better integrate into country diagnostic analysis key cross-cutting issues that underpin inclusive and resilient growth including political economy, fragility, sustainability, economic inclusion, gender and in particular female economic empowerment, jobs, and wider economic transformation. Better quality diagnostic analysis will provide a stronger evidence base on the constraints to inclusive growth, which is essential for economic development policy decisions, both for DFID portfolio choices and for wider policy dialogue.
