Priority areas where improvement can generate maximum impact on the overall business environment :
- 40 projects in 14 African countries
- 4 pan-African projects
- 5 special initiatives
ICF projects are delivering tangible improvements to Africa’s investment climate
Continue to deliver tangible results through existing project activity to increase appetite for improvements even further
Broaden geographical footprint (with particular focus on Francophone markets)
Continue to deliver progress against priority themes (with particular focus on Competition & Labour Markets)
Increase investor confidence through delivery of improvements and targeted communications activity
Enabling the business environment will attract, retain and reward domestic and international I
investment.. Africa currently offers 'the highest return on direct investment in the world and growth rates of the past decade demonstrate the enormous potentials
Providing funding and resources to ICF is an opportunity for the private sector to engage in actions that will promote security for their assets, contract enforcement, access to fair and transparent judiciary system and access to a modern public service system with less red tapes and barriers
ICF’s long-term success depends upon ongoing financial support from development partners and the private sector. We will all benefit from a more prosperous and economically stable Africa –and it is worth stressing that the financial and economic returns of an improved investment climate will far exceed the cost of ICF.
