Discussion areas National policies and international investment agreements are important framework conditions for stimulating investments. A good investment climate is central to growth and poverty reduction. A vibrant private sector creates jobs, provides the goods and services needed to improve living standards, and contributes taxes necessary for public investment in health, education, and other services. Only too often governments stunt the size of those contributions by creating unjustified risks, costs, and barriers to competition. It is a widely held view that African governments are partly to be blamed for the lack of sufficient investment in the continent. The Africagrowth Academy, in partnership with the World Bank-IFC and other institutions is organizing a conference aimed at examining the broader investment climate in Africa. The conference aims to examine some of the bottlenecks that discourage investment and to provide solutions and recommendations on steps Africa has to take to stimulate sustainable investment in the continent.
