Africa's Uniform OHADA Law: Uniquely Attractive for Foreign Investors


Event ended.

D Sy Law and Transcendance VC invite you to an online discussion with a panel of legal experts and investors from Africa and Singapore

Africa's fastest growing region today comprises a group of French-speaking countries - all members of OHADA, a system of unified business law spanning 17 African States.

OHADA's success, unique in depth and reach, underlies the region's economic integration and is a key driver for international investments.

As #OHADA marks its 30th anniversary, and #asbf2023 gears up, D Sy Law and TranscendanceVC & Education are inviting you to an online discussion with a panel of legal experts and investors from #Africa and #Singapore - followed by a Q&A.


The IMF’s 2023 GDP growth projections highlight Senegal (8.1%), the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) (6.7%), Rwanda (6.7%), Côte d’Ivoire (6.5%), Benin (6.2%) and Togo (6.2%) as Sub-Sahara’s fastest growing economies.

All, except Rwanda, are  members of OHADA ('Organisation for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa’), a unified system of business law – unique in the world and uniquely attractive for foreign investors in Africa.

OHADA countries’ outperformance is further confirmed in the World Bank’s projections for 2023/24: Senegal (8%/10.5%);  Côte d’Ivoire (6.8%/6.6%); Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) (6.4%/6.6%); Benin (6.2%/6.0%); Togo (5.6%;6.4%) here again top the list for Sub-Saharan Africa.

OHADA law has grown into Africa’s dominant legal system, applying seamlessly across an uninterrupted stretch of land from North Africa (in the North) to the Atlantic (in the West) and the Great Lakes region (in the South). In the East, OHADA is applied by the Comoros, in the Indian Ocean. Together, OHADA countries represent a market of close to 300 million people.
