Le plan d'investissement extérieur de l'UE: premiers projets en Afrique et dans le voisinage de l'Union

Le plan d'investissement extérieur de l'UE: premiers projets en Afrique et dans le voisinage de l'Union | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it
 

Par Al Idrissi (Euro-Méditerranée blog), le 14/08/2018

Dans le cadre de son plan d'investissement extérieur, l'UE a donné son feu vert, le 10 juillet, à un ensemble de programmes de garantie financière d'une valeur approximative de 800 millions d'euros.
Selon les estimations, ceux-ci contribueront à mobiliser 8 à 9 milliards d'euros d'investissements publics et privés en Afrique et dans le voisinage de l'Union.

Le pilier financier du plan d'investissement extérieur se compose de deux volets: le fonds de garantie et les mécanisme de financement mixte. Tous deux abonderont les secteurs agricole et agro-alimentaire. Une aubaine pour le financement des micro, petites et moyennes entreprises locales?
