The partnership with UNDP has enabled partnerships with other national and international partners that share a common concern for the environment, namely the Luxembourg Stock Exchange – Luxembourg Green Exchange, with whom the Cabo Verde Stock Exchange signed a Memorandum of Understanding in the area of sustainable financing, aiming at mentoring and knowledge exchange, capacity building, training, access to markets, among others.
BVC also signed an agreement with the Universidade Técnica do Atlântico, which prepared a feasibility study on the implementation of blue taxonomy in Cabo Verde which, in turn, resulted in the preparation of standards for Issuing Blue Bonds in Cabo Verde and respective blue taxonomy.
More strategically, through the management of the Trust Fund for Capital Market Development, the African Development Bank, who is also a partner of the Cabo Verde Stock Exchange, provided BVC with funding aiming to equip the country with its first capital market Master Plan, as well as a technological infrastructure that stimulates the liquidity of the secondary securities market. The sustainable securities market will inevitably be part of this Master Plan.
In order to increase the Blu-X platform’s visibility, the Cabo Verde Stock Exchange joined the Ocean Race, with Cabo Verde having been chosen to host one of the stopovers of the Ocean Race’s14th edition. This is a unique opportunity to promote the Cabo Verde Stock Exchange and the Blu-X platform.
