Africa Investment Technical Assistance Facility

Price Waterhouse Cooper

The UK-Africa Investment Summit aimed to drive increased investment into Africa and long-term inclusive growth. The UK Government established a Technical Assistance (TA) Facility to support the preparation and delivery of Summit content. It provided analysis, digital content and factsheets, as well as support to the delivery of a series of pre-Summit events. The UK-Africa Investment Summit TA Facility was led by PwC and drew on expertise from an alliance that included WAVTEQ, Vivid Economics, OCO Global, WG Inclusive and Adam Smith International. The contract is being extended to build on the legacy of the Summit to monitor impact, deliver scoping studies and technical advice around trade and investment in Africa, particularly related to Covid-19. The alliance remains the same, with the addition of Wellspring Development Capital.
