Private investment is undoubtedly a necessary component for infrastructure development in Africa. Strong infrastructure is vital for GDP growth. The basic purpose of the public private partnership model is to attract and engage private sector investment in projects to develop modern infrastructure and reliable services.

Now in its 6th edition, Africa PPP is the leading platform to discuss and learn about public private partnerships and promote their successful implementation across the continent. Launched in 2009 and consistently sponsored by the African Development Bank, the event is attended by hundreds of participants representing both the public and private sectors from countries across the globe. Previous editions have taken place in Tunisia (2009 and 2010), Kenya (2011), Nigeria (2012) and South Africa (2013).
