The only interactive forum for investors in Madagascar

Madagascar. — Madagascar is fast becoming an emerging market to watch. With the democratic re-election of President Marc Ravolomananana and the appointment of a new government that is implementing the Madagascar Action Plan (MAP) to fast-track social and economic development, this island nation offers a host of opportunities to the investor.

Eight commitments underpin MAP, and of particular investor interest is the promise to rebuild infrastructure. The government has prioritised the Energy Sector Development Project which enables ample investor opportunities in this reforming energy sector; partners are being sought out to improve generation, distribution and transmission of energy and electrification of the entire country.

In addition to these bold plans to encourage direct foreign investment, is the fact that Madagascar is bountiful in natural mineral resources like gemstones (sapphire, rubies, amethyst), gold, diamonds, uranium, bauxite, graphite, chromite and coal. Now a member of the Africa Trade and Insurance Agency, The Ministry of Mines has signed the Loi sur les Grands Investissement Miniers Law of large mining investments — to encourage mining exploration and develop the Mining Code in order to regulate the industry.

But how would a company get an inside perspective on the real opportunities that are now present in Madagascar? Attending the Executive Insider Briefings MADAGASCAR, taking place from the 16-18 April at the Hotel Colbert, Antananarivo, Madagascar is a tailored opportunity in which to meet the new government and public sector decision-makers, as well as high-level business people already operating in this market.

The Executive Insider Briefings MADAGASCAR is a two day round-table forum whereby participants can meet and access directly the new government of Madagascar and derive first-hand, in-depth knowledge of the business environment in general and of the energy and mining sectors, in particular.

A sophisticated programme of top Madagascar business contacts ensures any investor the convenience of immediate access to key projects coming up in energy and mining. Site visits to an electricity generation site as well as to an active mining site provides a unique opportunity to witness the island’s burgeoning operations and infrastructure.
