The Southern Africa Investment Company will be hosting the Southern Africa Investment Forum in May 2015 as part of a concerted effort to improve the investment climate within the Southern African region (www.sai-forum.com).
The event, capped at 500 delegates will be an exclusive and influential gathering of governments, regional organisations, business organisations, and high net worth individuals from 14 Southern African countries to participate under the theme “Where Capital Meets Opportunity”.
The most critical aspect of the event lies in its ability to bring together entities that would ordinarily not have the platform to work together. These entities will have over US $500 billion worth of projects and investments on show with immense deal making potential. The participating delegates will be drawn from South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Madagascar, Namibia, Mauritius, Angola, Lesotho, Tanzania, Swaziland, Mozambique and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The forum is expected to put forward tangible and actionable opportunities in each country for investors to pour capital into. These opportunities will range from mining, technology and stretch even to infrastructural development and energy. Moreover, the forum is set to discuss funding and financing models for entrepreneurs and businesses within the region.
