PIA meeting with the World Bank

During May 2021, the PIA met with senior members of the World Bank Africa team to discuss the recovery of the African continent in the wake of Covid-19. We had a vibrant discussion around the vaccine roll-out and its link to economic recovery. Other topics included regional and global trade, debt relief and revenue mobilisation. While the medium-term outlook for the continent is broadly positive, increased private sector investment remains dependent on a stable investment climate.
