Project presentation

Business men from diaspora

DiafrikInvest aims to accelerate and support the mobilisation of high potentials, entrepreneurs and investors from the diaspora to boost business relations between Europe, Morocco, Senegal and Tunisia and thus contribute to the economic development. Some 40 operations for local and diaspora entrepreneurs, business angels and national institutions of Morocco, Senegal and Tunisia will be carried out during 3 years, from December 2016 to December 2019.

Geographic area DiafrikInvest project

DiafrikInvest is being implemented in the framework of the Euro-African Dialogue on Migration and Development (Rabat Process), which brings together more than 50 countries along the West African migration route. The project is cofinanced (90%), for an amount of EUR 2 million, by the European Union through EuropeAid following the commitments made in the Rome Declaration. It has initiated a new phase of the Rabat process for 2015-2017, whose one of the main objectives is to strengthen the link between migration and development. DiafrikInvest therefore implements the framework for an organised and sustainable contribution of the diasporas to the economic, social and environmental development of their countries of origin.

 


ANIMA coordinates the project as part of a consortium of six partners: : ACIM, CONECT, Start-Up Morocco, Am Be Koun, CJD Senegal. The Moroccan Investment Development Agency (AMDI) is also involved in the project.
