Panorama général

Two foreign investors announced FDI projects in Palestine in 2013: a modest figure and unfortunately consistent with all ANIMA-MIPO observatory annual reports since 2003 - except in 2008, a record year during which 9 projects were identified. The first announcement came from the United Arab Emirates-based Abraaj Capital, which invested in Anoud Games, an educational games specialist founded in 1996 in Jerusalem and now established in Ramallah. The company has distributors in Saudi Arabia, Algeria, France and the USA.

This is the second Abraaj operation in Palestine, after the stake acquired in the aromatic herbs producer Thimar in 2012. It is conducted through the Palestine Growth Capital Fund, launched in 2009 and whose list of investors includes the Palestine Investment Fund (PIF) public fund, the Bank of Palestine and also the EIB, CISCO and the IFC (World Bank group). The second project concerns the Dutch Veldkamp, which embarked on the production of cheese and fresh cream in Hebron in partnership with the Palestinian Al-Jebrini, with the support of the investment support programme of the Netherlands and the MIGA, the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency of the World Bank group.

Proposals from the Senegalese diaspora to contribute to productive investment

A "Diaspora Act "for the adoption of appropriate legal frameworks

This advocacy is based on consultations with the private sector, conducted both with high-ranking diaspora talent in Europe and the United States and with repats, the entrepreneurs of the diaspora who have resettled in Senegal. It is also based on studies on diasporas and their networks conducted by ANIMA for more than ten years. It proposes concrete measures to facilitate and accelerate the involvement of economic diasporas in different channels of engagement.
