How have liquidity facilities helped access to local capital market? Oscar Mgaya, CEO, Tanzania Mortgage Refinance Facility.
With more than 46 cities in Africa swelling to populations of a million people or more — and 17 of the world's 100 fastest-growing cities located in Africa — there is an acute need to develop housing solutions for so many urban residents. But raising the capital to meet that growing demand for housing remains a significant challenge. In 2013, the African Union for Housing Finance (AUHF) will host a conference under the theme "Raising Capital for Housing Finance.” The Africa-China Urban Initiative will organize a conference panel discussion on "Understanding (and harnessing) Chinese investment interest."

Panelists invited include Chinese investors setting out their experiences and expectations for the market and an African corporation that has received Chinese financing.
