CENTRE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF INDUSTRY

A TOOL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF INDUSTRIAL ENTERPRISES IN ACP COUNTRIES

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 71 ACP countries (Africa, Caribbean and the 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 contracts, licensing or franchise agreements, subcontracts, etc.

The CDI’s services are easily accessible and are subdivided into 4 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 by providing its own expertise or making a non-reimbursable financial contribution. The CDI does not finance the investment of the project but helps with finance search and advice on appropriate financing packages.

The requests for assistance submitted to the CDI are evaluated on the basis of the financial viability and technical feasibility of the projects and their contribution as regards the development of the country concerned. All dossiers submitted to the CDI are treated confidentially. The total amount invested in these projects, or the value of the assets in the case of existing companies, must normally be between EURO 200,000 and EURO 10 million. Smaller companies may be accepted in certain cases: pilot projects, grouping together of several companies with a view to joint assistance, priority industrial sectors, etc. By “project”, the CDI means an industrial unit or group of units in the process of being created or undergoing expansion, diversification, rehabilitation or privatisation.
