A groundbreaking Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Agreement has been signed between the African Diaspora Central Bank (ADCB), the Republic of Vanuatu Trade Commission – Ghana, and STRATEMA AM GmbH of Germany.

This collaboration focused on Sustainable Economic Development through Diaspora Direct Investments (DDIs), marks a significant step towards achieving sustainable economic growth, social development, and transformative climate action.

Purpose of the agreement

This historic Agreement signed on July 4, 2024, establishes the basis for a broad relationship between the parties, encompassing diverse projects in sustainable development and investments.
The partnership aims to promote mutual success and prosperity by the terms and conditions outlined in the agreement.



  • Achieving sustainable economic growth
  • Fostering social development
  • Implementing transformative climate action
  • Developing infrastructure in energy, agriculture, and sustainable cities


The agreement is founded on key principles, emphasizing the integral role of the global African Diaspora as part of the African family and the importance of cooperative efforts to advance climate action within the Sixth Region.

The guiding frameworks include:

  • The Treaty Establishing the African Economic Community (1991, Abuja)
  • The Treaty of the Economic Community of States, Nations, Territories & Realms of the African Diaspora Sixth Region (ECO-6) (2019, Maroon Territories, Jamaica)
  • The Protocol on Relations Between The African Union And The Regional Economic Communities (RECs) (2021, Addis-Ababa)

The parties reaffirmed their commitment to an open African market economy, bolstered by intra-African trade and the strengthening of African nations and peoples.

Immediate actions and financial provisions

Under the terms of the agreement, ECO-6’s treasury within the ADCB will issue funds denominated in African Kingdoms LUMI (AKL), equivalent to US$29,326,500,000 or 27,360,375,000 EURO. These funds will support the development of various projects, with the flexibility to convert some portions into other currencies, including EURO and US$.

Key Highlights:

  1. Dispersal of Funds: All transactions will be conducted in the respective sovereign currencies of each Party, with a substantial issuance of LUMI to support project development
  2. Investment Focus: Funds will be invested in regional local entities across sectors, including banks, trade unions, government agencies, enterprises, start-ups, and R&D initiatives contributing to sustainable solutions
  3. Underwriting of Issuance: A portion of the funds will finance renewable energy reserves, aiming to deliver seven gigawatts (7GW) of solar energy over a 25-year term, aligning with Agenda 2063
  4. Valuation of LUMI: The monetary value of LUMI is pegged to 100kWh of solar energy or 4 grains of gold (0.2592g), ensuring its role as a stable store of value

HRM King Timothy Macpherson Semako, President of ADCB, said, “This Agreement represents a landmark achievement in leveraging Diaspora Direct Investments for sustainable development. Our partnership will drive economic growth and social progress while addressing climate challenges through innovative energy solutions.”
