The 2015 Infrastructure Africa Business Forum took place on the 1 – 2 September at the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg, South Africa. The event was designed to maximise the opportunity for delegates and experts to interact in a constructive, moderated dialogue in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas on how progress can be made in unleashing Africa’s infrastructure potential.
The African economy has undergone fundamental changes over the last decade. Growth in investor interest is driven by strong economic growth, rising foreign exchange reserves, quality and cost competitiveness and encouraging Government policy-making. The level of economic growth achieved in Africa in recent years has led to an expansion of industry, commerce and per capita income. This has fuelled the demand for infrastructure services including energy, transportation, ICT, water supply, growing agriculture and urban infrastructure.
This annual conference brings together Africa’s most senior business leaders, policy makers, regulators and media to advance debate and champion delivery of Africa’s critical infrastructure requirements.
The 2 day Conference allows 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.
