A lack of FDI is a barrier to social and economic progress.
Attracting FDI to Africa is difficult. It is even more difficult to attract it to locations outside a country’s capital.

Regions that seek FDI need, therefore, to make a determined and well-focused effort at aligning incentives around viable and promising investment opportunities, tailored both to local conditions and world markets.
