Jersey Finance in partnership with Invest Africa are delighted to host this webinar entitled: ‘Invest Africa: Is There a Different Way of Approaching Debt in Africa?’

Sub-Saharan Africa’s debt crisis had been building up since the 2008/2009 crash and accelerated following the 2014 oil shock to the point that, even before the Covid-19 pandemic, one third of countries in the region were either in or at risk of debt distress. With the added pressure of Covid-19, the International Monetary Fund now estimates that the region needs to find an additional $345 billion of funding through 2023.

In this webinar, we will discuss how multilateral institutions can go further to meet their promise to support the world’s poorest economies and explore the role of private sector lenders and capital markets in supporting sustainable fiscal balance sheets.
