The African Real Estate & Infrastructure Summit is a high-level conference focussing on urban development, mobility & technology, finance and investment and housing on the African continent.
Over the next 20 years, growth in Africa’s urban population will increase the demand for more infrastructure, including transport, housing, hospitals, schools, retail, industrial and fundamental facilities. To meet this on-going demand, public and private sector stakeholders will need to adapt their strategies to develop and fund projects.
The summit provides an essential platform for discussion between key stakeholders developing the future African cities.
Building on the success of our previous summits where more than 250 Islamic banking leaders from across Africa and internationally gather each year to discuss new strategies to boost trade & investment between Africa, OIC countries and the broader international markets through Islamic finance, Ethico Live in collaboration with the Central Bank of Djibouti are delighted to announce that the International Islamic Banking Summit Africa: Djibouti 2017 will again take place on the 8th & 9th of November 2017 at the Kempinski Palace Djibouti.
