Private equity funds are uniquely structured to drive growth and transform businesses. While some African pension funds are currently investing in private equity, there is still scope for more PE investment to assist African pension funds to boost their returns.

The webinar unpacked this paying special attention to the Covid 19 context. Hosted by moravia.

Brazzaville, Republic of Congo
This conference is extremely important for the Republic of Congo and the entire sector in general as it allows us to discuss current legislation and regulations in our country but also in the sub-region. It also allows all of the partners to discuss and exchange on the problems of our sector, from upstream to downstream, to be able to pinpoint the various problems and to provide possible solutions that governments and oil companies can continue to exploit to find lasting solutions to develop our sector.
I think that the conference is excellent. It is very important to remember that a country who can afford its own conference gives a clear sign of credibility, it shows that it is one of the leading places of oil & gas production in the world. Only few countries can afford to have their own conference, so it shows that there is a leader in the oil & gas market in Africa.
It has been very positive few days, it has been very productive, there has been a lot of very positive conversations. The key take home message is definitely that everybody wants to enhance production, continue exploration and prove reserves not only just in Congo but across all west Africa and the Appo productive countries.
