Place: Norfund head office at Fridtjof Nansens plass 4

Norfund’s mandate is to establish viable, profitable enterprises in developing countries that would not otherwise be initiated because of the high risk involved. To invest in some of the world’s most challenging countries and sectors we need to understand risk.

This report and presentation aims at giving us an understanding of the economic and political risks in the most important investment countries through an overview of status and direction on key economic, political and operational indicators.

Regional development and key risks and opportunities in the region for Norfund going forward will be presented by the heads of the Norfund regional offices in Asia, East Africa, West Africa, Southern Africa and Central America.

Copies of the report will be handed out during the meeting.
