The Panelists will discuss Foreign Direct and Public-Private Partnership Investments for Inclusive and Sustainable Reconstruction of Developing Economies amidst Covid-19.

The first installment of the Policy Leader Fellows talk series of the academic year 2021-22 will examine Public-Private Partnership (PPP) as a mechanism for sustainable Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).

The panel will discuss the role of Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) as a transnational financing approach and demonstrate how Public-Private Partnership (PPP) might promote its sustainability among developing economies.

Against this background, the panelists will explore the varying dynamics within an African context and articulate policy changes on how FDI would create skill-intensive jobs, facilitate green technological transfer, advance ecologically sustainable financing, and promote inclusive access to infrastructure through PPP.

The event will take place fully online.
