25 25 Conclusions: Examples of Partnerships for Development Partnerships with Banks and Asset Managers: ¿Why not picture a partnership between the National Co-operation agency and banks to create an investment fund (Public Private Equity) in Latin America following the model of the Emerging Africa Infrastructure Fund? This fund, with 370 million USD, was created by the British Co-operation agency (DFID) and private banks such as Barclays and Standard Bank. Other governments (Switzerland, Netherlands, Sweden) are also investing in this fund today. Why not envisage a French Investment Fund for Emerging Markets driven by the French Co-Operation agency? In 2006, the Swiss government created the Swiss Investment Fund for Emerging Markets (Sifem), with an initial investment of 200 million USD, to manage and promote investments of the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) in long term projects for the private sector in developing countries.

26 26 Partnerships with Banks and Telecoms: Micro-finance and remittances offer opportunities for private-public partnerships for France. Financial actors in Latin America are carrying out ambitious projects (see for instance BBVA Foundation for Micro-finance or the development of remittances markets). Mobile banking had a spectacular peak in South Africa with a significant impact on local individual and corporate development: with banking actors and telecoms in Latin America, France could promote bancarization through the mobile in Latin America. It could be a remittances channel. Regarding remittances, why not favour bank accounts in euros in Latin America and avoid the currency risk for the money senders, at the same time encouraging bancarization in the receiving country?
