Private Sector Development & Finance

Sound private sector development and finance policies that are supportive of private sector investment in agriculture, infrastructure, energy and services, innovative financing for developing capital markets, and improving the business-enabling environment are essential for Africa’s sustainable and inclusive economic growth and transformation.

About private sector development and finance

Our Focus

ECA’s overarching focus is to enable member States to design and implement policies in order to achieve sustained economic growth and transformation under the framework of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and Agenda 2063-the Africa we want, through leveraging the private sector and mobilization of resources. This would be achieved by harnessing the private sector as the engine for driving growth, as well as a provider of alternative means of financing for development.
