International business and investment forum boosts partnerships for Africa’s pharmaceutical industry

An international business and investment forum on “Mobilizing investment, technology and partnership opportunities for Africa’s pharmaceutical industry” gathered some 70 participants at the UN Campus in Bonn from 1 - 2 March 2018.

The forum offered a platform for African pharmaceutical manufacturers, who have been part of a United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)-supported mentoring process, to explore partnership opportunities with German pharmaceutical companies and potential investors.

The Forum was hosted by the recently-established UNIDO Investment and Technology Promotion Office (ITPO) in Bonn, Germany, which sets out to promote investments in developing countries and foster collaboration. It formed part of a UNIDO programme – funded largely by Germany – which for more than a decade has sought to foster local pharmaceutical production in developing and least developed countries, notably in sub-Saharan Africa.
