6. A TOOL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF INDUSTRIAL ENTERPRISES IN ACP COUNTRIES


CDI

CENTRE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF INDUSTRY

The Centre for the Development of Industry (CDI) is an ACP-EU institution financed by the European Development Fund (EDF) under the Lomonvention bringing together the European Union and the 70 ACP countries (Africa, Caribbean and Pacific). Its objective is to encourage and support the creation, expansion and restructuring of industrial companies (mainly in manufacturing and agro-industry) in the ACP countries. To this effect, it promotes partnerships between ACP and European companies which may take various forms: financial, technical or commercial partnership, management contract, licensing or franchise agreement, subcontract, etc.

The CDI's services are easily accessible and are subdivided into four facilities (see table) to support the different stages in the creation, expansion and rehabilitation of industrial companies. In this framework, the CDI intervenes, free of charge, providing its own expertise, or makes a non-reimbursible financial contribution. The CDI does not finance the investment of the project but helps to seek out and put together a financing package.

The requests for assistance submitted to the CDI are evaluated on the basis of the financial and technical viability of the projects and their contribution as regards the development of the country concerned. Information submitted to CDI will be treated in complete confidentiality. The total amount invested in these projects, or the value of the assets in the case of existing companies, must be between 200,000 and 10 million ECU. Smaller companies may be accepted in certain cases: pilot projects, regrouping of several companies with a view to joint assistance, priority industrial sectors, etc.

By “project”, CDI means an industrial unit or group of units in the process of being created or undergoing expansion, diversification, rehabilitation or privatisation.
