The project is a technical assistance grant of USD 500,000 to the African Business Roundtable (ABR) from the Fund for African Private Sector Assistance (FAPA). The ABR is an African business association whose objectives are to strengthen the private sector in Africa; promote intra-Africa trade and investment; and attract foreign investment to Africa is active through various Chapters across Africa. This technical assistance contribution from FAPA will be used to assist ABR to execute its mandate effectively and to increase its associations’ membership and enhance its financial sustainability in the longer run. Specifically, the grant will be used by ABR to undertake specific support activities to ABR core members, business associations in Africa. In doing so, the private sector in Africa will be strengthened through a stronger representative role of local business associations who can advocate for a better local business environment, and who can support in particular their SME members through advice, networks, referrals, and through the identification of new business opportunities.
The objective of the proposed assistance is to enhance ABR's capacity and achieve financial sustainability by building stronger business associations in Africa, thereby strengthening the private sector.
The main beneficiary of the project is the African Business Roundtable (ABR).
