Introduction to Hand in Hand Investment Forum 2024

 

 

The Investment Forum 2024, the crux of the Initiative's partnership-building effort, provides a platform for national authorities to present investment opportunities to investors, multilateral development banks, the private sector and donors, with a focus on investment potential on national agriculture and food value chain investment opportunities. 

For countries, long-term finance in public investments is key for Hand-in-Hand's success. For multilateral development banks, their blended finance structures and risk-mitigating mechanisms can support private investors in the poorest, fragile countries, and help enhance their roles in participating countries. For investors, direct presentation of investment cases will enable them to directly engage with countries on investment opportunities.

After the successful second Hand-in-Hand Investment Forum in 2023, the third and more extensive edition of the Investment Forum will take place from 15 to 17 October 2024 in Rome, Italy, with the presence of around 28 countries.

Prospective investors will also have an opportunity to learn about regional and sub-regional initiatives and related investment opportunities. 

During the three-day event, Ministers and representatives from the participating countries will have the opportunity to present their country prioritized investment plans and detail opportunities in those areas where the Hand-in-Hand Initiative supports the Government to reduce poverty and hunger.

Bilateral meetings can also be arranged between Ministers and senior officials of each participating country with potential development partners at any time especially during the event and afterwards.
