The key to unlocking Africa’s growth potential is investment in its infrastructure. Infrastructure Africa is all about maximising those investments.
“This growing infrastructure demand presents a critical challenge for Africa as the continent seeks to compete in global and regional trade markets that rely on just-in-time production and flexible, speedy and reliable delivery. Closing the infrastructure deficit is vital for economic prosperity and sustainable development.”
Shem Simuyemba, chief infrastructure economist, AfDB.
Numerous studies, analysis and forums, conducted by the AfDB and others, have brought out the fact that one of the biggest constraints to Africa’s growth and competitiveness has been fragmented, inadequate and under performing infrastructure systems in terms of transport, ICT, energy and water.
