Morocco is represented at this event by a delegation of the National Office of Hydrocarbons and Mines (ONHYM) chaired by its Director General Amina Benkhadra.
Other members of the delegation of the Office are Jamal El Fouar, Director of the Support Pole, Mohammed Benzaria, Director of the Midstream Pole, and Wafae Benjelloun Benhammou, Director Advisor.
Placed under the theme “Investing sustainably to strengthen economic resilience”, some 1,500 people participate in the 2022 AIF, held on November 2-4 in Abidjan.
The event brings together investors, project developers, transaction advisors, legal and other professionals, all committed to closing the investment gap on the African continent.
The forum aims to reduce intermediation costs and increase active and productive engagement between African governments and the private sector. The AIF also provides investors with access to a structured platform offering bankable and risk-free transactions.
In line with the African Development Bank’s five pillars, program sessions will focus on energy and climate, including preparations for the COP27 summit in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, as well as food security and self-sufficiency, ICT/telecommunications, institutional capital, health, and trade and industry.
