The decision follows a careful evaluation of the impact and evolution of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the attendant risk of a possible second wave, and its associated effects on global travel, investments, as well as social distancing rules.

The African Development Bank (AfDB) has announced the postponement of the 2020 Africa Investment Forum to 2021, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

The Forum, which is a three-day event, was scheduled to take place this month in South Africa’s largest city of Johannesburg.

According to the statement on the AfDB website, “The decision follows a careful evaluation of the impact and evolution of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the attendant risk of a possible second wave, and its associated effects on global travel, investments, as well as social distancing rules.”
