DFC is investing more than $1 billion in economic growth and connectivity in Africa.

Africa requires significant investment in connectivity to forge deeper ties with the rest of the world, facilitate cross-border trade, and foster sustainable economic growth.

Through Connect Africa, DFC is investing $1 billion in telecommunications and internet access, value chains that connect producers of raw materials with end users, and essential infrastructure such as roads, railways, ports, and airports. By investing in these three key areas, we can strengthen connectivity and help the continent further integrate into the global economy.
