G8 Deauville, G8/Africa Joint Declaration Shared Values, Shared Responsibilities, 26-27 May 2011

Commitments in: Infrastructure - Energy

 “21. ... The G8 will continue to support projects for access to energy, both decentralised and centralised, notably those with a regional dimension and a sustainable development perspective, as well as cross-border trade and capacity-building initiatives on energy. The African Union-NEPAD Action Plan and the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA) constitute appropriate frameworks to mobilise foreign direct investment. We stress the need for institutional and regulatory reforms to attract increased investment, notably from the private sector.”
