Building Blue Economies: Deep-diving for Development Funding and Contracts

Diane Willkens to lead Session 47: “Deep-diving for Development Funding and Contracts” at The Corporate Council on Africa’s 2016 U.S.-Africa Infrastructure Conference: Building Blue Economies 

New Orleans, Louisiana on October 16-18, 2016

Learn how to open up international donor markets to (i) strategically position for projects and navigate through the complexities of bidding in these emerging markets, and (ii) identify donors funds to offset CAPEX and OPEX and mitigate investment risk. The World Bank, African Development Bank, Millennium Challenge Corporation, and Development Bank of South Africa, to name a few of the leading funders on the Continent, are constantly introducing new projects. Learning to assess the commercial opportunities in these projects and submit competitive bids or proposals is an integral part of competing as a multinational company in Africa.

Join Diane M. Willkens, President and CEO, Development Finance International, Inc. and CCA Vice Chair for a breakfast conversation on unearthing development funding sources.
