Also present at the signing, were the Host and Adviser to consortium, Raymond Huang, Country Chair for Singapore at Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council (CWEIC), Boh Soon Lim and other representatives of the Investor community.

Commenting on the landmark event, Toyin Sanni remarked that the AAA Impact Fund will go a long way to bridge funding gaps for critical infrastructure and other resources caused by inadequate information, trust deficit and inadequate structures to support cross-border investments thus perpetuating poverty, inequality and inequities.
