The need for infrastructure development in emerging markets is critical. In most African countries, particularly the lower-income countries, infrastructure emerges as a major constraint on doing business. The cost of addressing Africa's infrastructure needs is around $93 billion a year, according to the World Bank.
The annual Infrastructure Africa Business Forum will present stakeholders with an opportunity to unpack the enormous growth potential in addressing Africa's infrastructure needs. Africa, with a population exceeding 1 billion people is well placed as an emerging market, keen for investment and growth and has successfully maintained an average growth rate of 4% for the past few years as a continent.
The two day Business forum will bring together business to explore new trading opportunities, establish new business networks, develop and form partnerships and plan a way forward to address some of the continent's requirements.
Key sectors to be featured at the 2012 event include: Power I Transport I Water I Agriculture I ICT.
Date: 10 July 2012 to 11 July 2012 Location: Sandton Convention Centre, Sandton Cost: R4 950.00 excluding VAT
