"Green" investments in Africa (Tchad)


Libya  has a considerable stake in many hotels, telecom companies, farmland, all over Africa. A prominent example can be seen on this picture: The Kempinski hotel in N´djamena, Tchad. By far the biggest, most modern hotel, a real landmark. Too bad it is a bit out of town, and I also doubt that occupancy is very high.
In Libya the Libyan Africa Portfolio (LAP), a subsidiary of the Libyan Investment Authority, was responsible for investments in Sub-Sahara Africa. Investments through the LAP were of course done within the political framework of the government at that time and should, in addition, bring a positive return on the investment.  During the last one-two years LAP also invested in Ukraine, Russia, etc.
But lets continue with the Kempinsky:
Here, Austrian history was written in 2008: when our troops landed in N`djamena, it was just the day when rebels overran the capital. However, we were warned by the French. Luckily, the Kempinsky had some empty rooms available, so our soldier could find a safe retreat there, until the French Army came to rescue our boys.
Merci
