Our Global Reach

CIIP’s global reach now totals 54 countries. During FY 2018-2019 (July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019), CIIP operations leveraged $118 million in public investment. For example, in Kenya, a new diagnostic tool for the assessment of incubators and accelerators will be used to support competitively-awarded performance contracts with innovation ecosystem intermediaries. The project aims to support over 100 firms in developing innovative products. In Ethiopia, the construction of two new industrial parks, Bole Lemi II and Kilinto, is near complete, and over 260 hectares of industrial land have been serviced, leading to the commitment of $55 million in private investments by new investors in the parks. The grant’s continued support to Bole Lemi I through skills development and linkages has contributed to the creation of 4,677 new jobs. In Madagascar, CIIP supported the follow-on growth poles operation through a Market Competition Policy Assessment of the vanilla and litchi sectors and a Destination Gap Analysis for tourism which aims to inform agribusiness and tourism interventions in the targeted regions. 50 agribusiness and tourism businesses are expected to leverage new or clean technologies and the project expects to create over 7,500 jobs. 6,567 people and 130 trainers were trained, and over 35 strategies and reform programs were designed across the active portfolio.
