Deutsche Bank’s €142 Million Hospital Projects Financing In The Republic of Côte d’Ivoire


Ashurst has advised Deutsche Bank on the €142 million development financing of a portfolio of priority hospital projects in the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire.

This landmark project addresses an important development objective for Côte d’Ivoire and, with completion of the new hospitals expected in October 2020, will support the country’s current efforts to contain the Covid-19 pandemic.
