ARISE IIP (Integrated Industrial Platforms) conceives, finances, builds and operates integrated industrial zones with high-added value across Africa. ARISE IIP identifies industrial gaps in African countries and designs tailor-made solutions to enable the sustainable and local transformation of raw materials, boost exports, and promote trade - thus contributing to the development of more competitive economies in Africa.
The Dubai-based group has invested 2bn USD in Africa since 2011. Its main shareholders are ATIF (Africa Transformation and Industrialization Fund) and AFC (Africa Finance Corporation).
ARISE Group currently operates and develops economic zones in 12 countries in Central and Western Africa, including Gabon, Togo, Benin, Congo, Rwanda, Ivory Coast and Chad. ARISE IIP’s industrial ecosystems include world-class integrated logistics services and are expanding the successful “infrastructure as a service” model as two space ground stations are already operated from the Gabon Special Economic Zone, including a SpaceX rocket tracking facility.
