NEW INFRASTRUCTURE OPPORTUNITIES IN AFRICA

NEW INFRASTRUCTURE OPPORTUNITIES IN AFRICA

 
 
Africa is urbanising at breakneck speeds, which means the need for infrastructure such as bypasses, bridges, new highways and new technologies need to be deployed in congested areas where traditional methods cannot work. The total population in the continent is projected to reach almost 2.5 billion people by 2050 with about 55% living in urban areas. This is a significant increase given that less than 10% of Africa’s population resided in urban areas in 1950. Most of the increase in urban population is taking place in small- and medium-sized cities. The growth of existing villages and towns is also transforming rural landscapes into urban areas. *
 
This evolution of infrastructure and the underlying drivers will be highlighted at the Infrastructure Africa 2018 conference on 9th and 10th October 2018 at the Sandton Convention Centre. African countries Namibia, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Sierra Leone will feature a host of infrastructure project development opportunities at the event, with a desire to grow the private sector participation in their respective projects.
Each country will present a few of the latest infrastructure project development opportunities and explain the business possibility linked to each project. There is enormous potential for companies to develop a local regional presence and to integrate their strategies with the evolving economies and underpinning infrastructure development in the region.
