The current situation regarding infrastructure in Africa shows a lack of financing. According to the African Bank for Development (ABD) in 2020, financing needs in infrastructures are estimated between USD 130 to 170 bn annually until 2025. Despite sustained increase in funding, sectors like water supply and treatment still suffer the most from low investments whereas the supply of clean water is key for local population. Africa is definitely a continent with potential for Finnish exporters.

How to get financing in Africa and how to operate to finance the plans and projects in the African markets? This webinar will give you advise and experiences in financing in Africa.

The webinar is co-organized by the Africa Business Network of the Finland Chamber of Commerce, Société Générale (SG), and the Helsinki Region Chamber of Commerce.
