A high-level round-table on building private equity and private capital markets in Africa to explore the promise and obstacles facing private capital investments in Africa. The round-table of investors and policy makers met under the auspices of the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and the World Economic Forum on Africa to navigate the complex world of private equity, which in recent years has shown increased interest. The investors and policy makers here underscore that harmonizing regulatory systems and deepening regional integration as a means to develop capital markets across boundaries, could bring about long-term investments that could bolster the continent’s development aspirations.
