Unlocking the infrastructure investment potential of Africa
2017 Public Private Partnerships & African Infrastructure Summit


The role of PPPs at the highest level is invaluable in driving the infrastructure development programmes for the African continent. In this context, collaboration between governments and the private sector is one such key driving force for infrastructure and strategic projects development. Although many governments have considered various steps to promote PPPs in their countries there are major problems in implementing PPP projects.

The 2016 Public Private Partnerships & African Infrastructure Summit is a platform for all the relevant parties that are working towards Promoting Solutions to Africa’s Infrastructure Development Goals to come together to discuss, debate, network and negotiate their way through all the challenges that lie in front of us to make Africa the success story she is already becoming.
