The Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework Agreement (PSC-F) signatory countries convened the Great lakes Investment and Trade Conference (GLITC) as a follow-up action to the first Private Sector Investment Conference, held in 2016 in Kinshasa. The mobilization of private sector investment into the region to harness the extensive natural resources endowments and existing economic opportunities could be catalytic in creating shared prosperity and destiny. On the long run, private sector investment bears the potential to contribute to the collective efforts towards sustainable peace, stability and the transformation of the Great Lakes region. Thus, the Conference will focus on cross-border trade and investment, as catalysts for regional integration.
