Netherlands puts 200M fCFA in Invest-in-Mali Forum
The Kingdom of the Netherlands has contributed 200 million fCFA to the Invest-in-Mali Forum scheduled for December 7-8, 2017, and which has an estimated budget of 1.5 billion CFA, APA can report on Wednesday.
The financing agreement was signed by Dutch Ambassador to Mali Jolke Oppewal and Investment Minister Konimba Sidibé.
The organizers are looking for further funding because the budget of the forum is still not completely funded.
Speaking at the signing of the convention, Minister Konimba Sidibé urged “Mali’s partners and friends to accompany the country in successfully organizing the forum.”
The two-day forum will feature high-level conferences and panels on economics, finance, credit, small and medium-sized enterprises, among other topics.
It will also be an occasion for B2B meetings between national and international stakeholders and economic operators.
The Invest-in-Mali forum aims to put the country back on the global economic scene after the crises it has just gone through.
Finally, it is the biggest economic forum held in Mali since 2012, when the country was struck by a serious political-security crisis, from which it is gradually recovering.
