Round table for the financing of infrastructure projects in Central Africa
Under the High Patronage of HE Mr. Denis Sassou N’Guesso, President of the Republic of Congo, the Governments of the Central African Republic, the Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Republic of Chad and the ECCAS will hold on Thursday March 19, 2020 at the Kintélé International Conference Center in Brazzaville, the Round Table for the financing of infrastructure projects in Central Africa.
This high-level meeting, which benefits from the support of the African Development Bank (AfDB), aims to mobilize close to 2.5 billion euros from multilateral and bilateral partners for the financing of a dozen major transport infrastructure projects that have been the subject of advanced technical studies. These projects constitute the first phase of the Priority Investment Program (PIP 2020-2024), with a second phase planned for 2030 to contain the extension of the Kinshasa-Ilebo railway, still under technical study.
The achievement of these historic projects presents a major challenge for the development and regional integration of Central Africa and the continent.
The program of the round table, the list of infrastructure projects and other practical information will be published soon on the website which is being finalized.
