Under the theme "Leasing in Africa: The Challenges of Recent Global and Regional Developments," the African Leasing Association (AFROLEASE), in collaboration with the Association of African Development Finance Institutions (AADFI) and with the strong support of the Leasing Company of Nigeria, held its Fourth African Leasing Convention and Senior Policy Workshop at the Sofitel Hotel, Abidjan, Cфte d'Ivoire on 27-29 July 1998.
ADB Proposes A Study and A Credit Line
Statistics Forty participants, from 28 institutions attended, representing 7 African and 1 European country.
Countries: Cфte d'Ivoire Liberia Niger Nigeria Morocco Senegal Togo France
The workshop addressed the major issues affecting the growth of the leasing industry--legislation and long-term financing. One of workshop's biggest achievements was the African Development Bank's proposal for a study of leasing in Africa and for the introduction of a line of credit for the development of the leasing industry in Africa, particularly leasing to small and medium-sized enterprises.

Workshop Objectives The objective of the workshop was to update the participants on the prospects of leasing in Africa and to explore how the industry can meet the challenges of on-going regionalisation and globalisation, including creating an awareness of leasing as a viable alternative method of equipment financing and pursuing an in-depth analysis of the impediments hindering the successful growth and development of leasing in Africa.
President of AFROLEASE Calls for Long Term Funding Assistance From Mutlilaterals Mrs. R.Z. Abashiya, Chairperson of the Occasion, President of AFROLEASE and Managing Director of the Leasing Company of Nigeria Limited, gave the opening presentation, including a history of the founding of AFROLEASE in 1994 with delegates from Ghana, Uganda, and Nigeria. AFROLEASE was established to advance the leasing industry by creating awareness and educating the public as to its benefits. Mrs. Abashiya also observed that the inadequate financial resources facing the continent could only be improved by greater mobilisation of domestic resources and private foreign investment of the type seen in the emerging markets and newly industrialised countries of Eastern Europe, Latin America and South East Asia. Though certain factors like high levels of economic and political instability and improper management of resources have discouraged capital formation, there is the need to address these issue to enable us to join the international community, she said. The culture of close cooperation for regional and global integration should be established. This can be achieved if the role of equipment leasing is brought into prominence. For this to be feasible, long term funding at concessionary repayment terms should be sourced from multi-lateral institutions like the IFC and the ADB, and in this regard she requested the assistance of these institutions to support equipment leasing in Africa. She also noted that appropriate laws on taxation, legislation, regulation and the practice of leasing should also be evolved, and concluded by urging regional and non-regional institutions, multi-lateral and bilateral agencies to join and support AFROLEASE. Mr. Victor Kouame, AADFI's Representative and the special guest of honour, remarked in his address that he saw leasing as a base for capital formation and encouraged institutions in Africa to partake fully in leasing with the support of organisations like ADB
At the Plenary Session: "Funding Leasing Operations at the National and Regional Level" "Creating a Conducive Environment for Leasing in Africa: the Cфte d'Ivoire Experience" "Leasing in Africa: the Challenges of Recent Regional and Global Developments" Three papers were presented at the plenary session. The first paper, "Funding Leasing Operations at the National and Regional Level," was presented by the Chief Guest Speaker, Mr. Lobe Ndoumbe, Head Private Sector, African Development Bank. He noted that positive economic changes were happening in Africa as the result of recent reforms and acknowledged that leasing was an important and necessary tool for economic growth and development. While leasing in Africa today amount to only US$4 billion in investment, he considered leasing important because if focuses on cash flow and targets small and medium scale enterprises.
Mr. Ndoumbe also remarked on the role of ADB to promote economic and social development of its member countries. To date, it has financed operations and projects worth US$31 billion. It is currently redirecting its efforts to the private sector in order to improve the business environment in Africa. As to leasing specifically, ADB is consolidating its operations of direct financing through lines of credit, participation in syndication and equity in the leasing industry, and venture capital companies. It is also lobbying for legal frameworks that will be favourable to the leasing industry. Mr. Ndiawar Diack, Managing Director, Sogefibail/Safbail, and Chairman of the West African Leasing Association, spoke on the subject "Creating a Conducive Environment for Leasing in Africa: the Cфte d'Ivoire Experience." He discussed how the the accounting rules contradict the legal rules and need to be reconciled. He also stressed the need for the central banks and regulatory bodies to serve as a driving force in support of leasing. "Leasing in Africa: the Challenges of Recent Regional and Global Developments" was the topic for Mr. M.A. Ajayi, Senior Manager of the Leasing Company of Nigeria Limited. He noted that in Africa, small scale industries were the "bedrock for development" and that they should be supported and financed by the African Development Bank and the African Export-Import Bank through leasing.
Final Communiquй Issued
In addition to the papers presented, group discussions in English and French were held on the topical themes of the conference and the observations of those discussions were summarized into a formal, final communiquй. Click here for The Final Communiquй of the AADFI/AFROLEASE Seminar.
While participants considered the conference a tremendous success, it was concluded that African states "have certain traits that posed serious challenges to the bright prospects of this unique finance alternative, especially in the areas of leasing laws and shortage of long term funds, which is the pre-requisite for leasing practice. There is the need to mobilise domestic and foreign resources to enhance development as been done in the emerging markets in Eastern Europe, South East Asia and Latin America."
