o Invested in the Gabon Special Economic Zone, (GSEZ), a joint venture between Olam and the Republic of Gabon, with a diversified portfolio of strategic infrastructure assets being developed, constructed and operated across various sectors including transport, in Gabon. This AFC investment in a single transport platform vehicle, facilitated the simultaneous development of several projects.
o Financed Hakan, a peat to power plant, which will increase Rwanda's installed capacity by 40% when it comes online.
Andrew Alli, President and CEO of AFC, commented on the results: 
"2016 has been a successful year for AFC, reflected by our income and profit growth and our balance sheet strength. Operationally, we've had a great year too, with investments including Gabon's Special Economic Zone, paving the way for greater economic diversification in the country. We've also strengthened our relationships with development finance institutions and the private sector - for example by launching a Joint Venture with Harith - merging power assets to create a pioneering African Power Platform Vehicle. 

"AFC aims to be a US$5 billion Corporation by 2019 and despite a challenging economic environment, we are confident that we have built the firm foundations necessary to continue delivering positive socio-economic change across Africa. Ahead of our 10 year anniversary in May, we look forward to the next chapter in AFC's growth story."

AFC's mission is to address Africa's pressing infrastructure needs and build the foundations for robust economic development across the continent, while seeking a competitive return on investment for its shareholders. The Corporation has invested approximately US$4 billion in projects across 28 African countries and in its core sectors including power, telecommunications, transport and logistics, natural resources and heavy industries.
