Event website: Achieving Greater Businesses of Scale in Sub-Saharan Africa: Job Creation, Innovation and Industrialization

Event cost: Attendance at this event is by invitation only.

Private sector expansion is critical to achieving the job creation required for countries in sub-Saharan Africa to prosper and become significant sources of global consumption and production. However, supporting the growth of businesses requires a range of structural changes and policies such as better access to finance, improved transport infrastructure and increased productivity that can help achieve economies of scale at a firm and industry level.

This roundtable discussion will examine prospects for the scaling-up of businesses in Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia and the need to develop a shared understanding of the policy responses required in these countries to create the volume of jobs needed to make economic growth sustainable and equitable.

This event is supported by CDC Group.
