RE­GIONAL IN­TE­GRA­TION

Pro­mot­ing de­liv­ery

Financial Mail - Investors Monthly - - Special Report dbsa -

Part of the DBSA’s man­date is to pro­mote in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment in or­der to fa­cil­i­tate greater re­gional in­te­gra­tion. It acts as a strate­gic part­ner to a num­ber of other de­vel­op­ment fi­nance in­sti­tu­tions in Africa, par­tic­u­larly in the SADC re­gion. It is a mem­ber of SADC’s In­fra­struc­ture Work­ing Group, which aims to bring the re­gion’s de­vel­op­ment fi­nance in­sti­tu­tions (DFIs) to­gether in or­der to plan, iden­tify, de­velop and de­liver mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial and sus­tain­able eco­nomic in­fra­struc­ture projects. The work­ing group meets quar­terly with each mem­ber re­quired to bring one na­tional or re­gional leg­is­lated project that re­quires “last-mile” prepa­ra­tion, fi­nan­cial struc­tur­ing or syn­di­ca­tion. The DBSA plays a valu­able role as it has ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence of com­plex in­fra­struc­ture projects.
