The Ministry of Finance established the Accra SDGs Investment Fair on December 5, 2019. The Investment Fair was established as part of efforts to bridge the SDGs financing gap by encouraging private financing of the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), while facilitating collaborations between investors and sustainable public and private sector projects/businesses.
The theme of the 2019 Accra Investment Fair is Sustainable Development Financing: Building Mutually Beneficial Partnerships, this is because the Ministry recognizes the importance of collaborations between private and public actors in economic development. These collaborations become even more critical as governments work towards closing the SDGs financing gap, which is estimated at US$ 2.5 – 3 trillion per year.
As a result, the Accra SDGs Investment Fair is organized in partnership with the SDGs Advisory Unit at the Office of the President, the Ministry of Planning, the Ghana Investment Promotions Centre, Social Enterprise Ghana, and Zebu investments. The 2019 SDGs Investment Fair has also been supported by UNDP, UNPOS, DFID and IFC.
