Investment guides provide an overview of the main sectors that have been identified as offering productive opportunities for investors interested in a particular Millennium City. The guides also provide information on key issues such as infrastructure, the legal and regulatory environment governing investment and the broader context of development issues. Because they are a reflection of the situation at the time of their preparation, users are advised to check on whether conditions have changed since their publication. Intended for both foreign and domestic investors, these guides are written to be credible and useful tools for evaluating some of the more promising investment sites in sub-Saharan Africa. Furthermore, if well embedded in the economic strategies of host economies, foreign direct investment can help improve the competitiveness of domestic enterprises as well, a core foundation of economic growth.
