The development of a vibrant private sector is central to promoting economic growth and creating opportunities for the poor. Sound and efficient markets can ensure that resources are allocated where they are most productive, assisting job creation and spurring economic growth.
IFC’s Creating Markets Advisory (CMA) Unit delivers on IFC’s capital increase commitments by providing a foundation for Regional, Industry, and Upstream teams to increase private sector investment opportunities. The CMA team works proactively with governments and regulatory agencies to build effective and efficient market conditions, both at economy-wide as well as industry/sector level, for increased private investments. Our global experience shows that challenges in the working environment and lack of the right enabling regulatory framework result in countries losing significant amounts of investment annually. The unit collaborates extensively with the public sector, private sector, and other teams across the World Bank Group in the design and delivery of advisory services.
CMA currently operates across the Africa region, with an active portfolio of 80 advisory services projects.
