Infrastructure Africa 2015 to address current financing trends, the liberalisation of Africa’s air space and regional cooperation

Africa needs $95 billion per annum for the next 10 years to meet its infrastructure demands. The demand for infrastructure is driven by rising populations and rapid urbanisation and is causing a shift for all players in the sector. Internationally, the outlook is extremely positive between now and 2020, signalling new business opportunities for the continent’s infrastructure players.

The Medium-Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) of the South African government has set aside R845-billion for public sector infrastructure projects with a further R3,2-trillion infrastructure projects under consideration up to 2020. So far, around 25% of these are being financed and implemented. On the African continent $20-billion expenditure in infrastructure projects is already underway.African-infrastructure

With these ambitious goals in sight for Africa’s build programmes, the fourth annual Infrastructure Africa Business Forum is being hosted in Johannesburg, South Africa in a month’s time. With the aim of engaging with African governments and African infrastructure players, the two-day event and exhibition with business-matchmaking will facilitate business connections for Africa’s build programmes and seek to unlock private sector opportunities in infrastructure projects.
