Oxford Business Group, ARISE Collaborate On Sustainable Industrialisation

A global research and consultancy firm, Oxford Business Group (OBG), has collaborated with ARISE IPP (Integrated Industrial Platforms) to develop an independent video that highlights the progress of sustainable industrialisation in sub-Saharan Africa.

As sub-Saharan African economies experience rapid growth and development, governments are increasingly turning to the private sector for expertise in co-developing industrial zones. 

In addition to this, Oxford Business Group and ARISE IPP have collaborated to shed light on the pivotal role of sustainable practices in shaping the region’s economic and social landscape.

The “Growth Perspective Video” underscores the significance of adhering to international best practices and principles of sustainability, particularly as businesses in the region continue to evolve and engage in global trade.

This features the success story of the Gabon Special Economic Zone – GSEZ Nkok, a flagship initiative in Africa that has attracted significant investment and elevated Gabon’s position in the global timber industry.

Speaking on the development, CEO of ARISE IIP, Gagan Gupta, noted that, following the establishment of the UN Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs), there has been a notable surge in stakeholder interest for the development of ESG-aligned physical, environmental, and social infrastructure. 

This encompasses a spectrum of essentials ranging from electricity, internet, and roads to sanitation and education.

“This demand is sparking attraction from African nations towards foreign direct û to highlight how sustainable industrialization can drive economic growth while ensuring environmental and social responsibility.”

“By partnering with ARISE IPP, as our African Industry regional partner, we aim to bring attention to the positive impact of sustainable industrialisation on sub-Saharan African economies. This video provides valuable insights into how nations can leverage the private sector’s expertise for their economic and societal advancement,” he said. 

The partnership between OBG and ARISE comes at a crucial juncture, as nations across the region seek avenues for resilient economic growth while addressing environmental and social challenges.

The ‘Growth Perspectives Video’ serves as a powerful tool for policymakers, investors, and stakeholders interested in sustainable development strategies.

Oxford Business Group (OBG) is a global research and advisory company with a presence in over 30 countries, spanning Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and the Americas. It is recognised internationally as a distinctive and respected provider of on-the-ground intelligence on world’s fastest-growing markets, termed The Yellow Slice, in reference to OBG’s corporate colour.
