Africa50 Delegation Meets Zimbabwe’s Finance Minister; Discusses Support for Power Generation Projects
On March 11, Africa50 CEO Alain Ebobissé paid a courtesy call on Zimbabwe’s Minister of Finance and Economic Development, Hon. Professor Mthuli Ncube, to discuss investment in the country’s infrastructure and potential collaboration with Africa50.
Minister Ncube expressed Zimbabwe’s interest in Africa50 and acknowledged that, as a pan-African investment vehicle focusing on public-private partnerships, it could be a key partner in developing and financing much needed projects in power generation, including solar farms. Mr. Ebobissé underlined Africa50’s commitment to consider such projects in Zimbabwe for potential equity investments. This is in line with the institution’s mandate to accelerate infrastructure development in Africa by identifying medium- to large-scale projects in the energy, transport, and ICT sectors that combine high development impact with attractive returns for investors.
