Governments in Africa are trying to meet the constant demand for increasing infrastructure, but cannot fund the projects on their own. Developing partnerships with private-sector entities allows governments to maintain quality services even with budget limitations. Africa’s infrastructure can be improved by both public and private pooling financial resources and expertise to advance infrastructure projects and advance the delivery of basic services.

APPP has been specially designed to showcase investment opportunities and infrastructure development through PPPs. Project sponsors, financiers, multilateral development agencies, public and private sector players and insurance agencies will discuss ways to mobilise PPP projects in Africa, develop bankable projects and review best practice scenarios.

Since its inception in 2009, Africa PPP has become the definite platform for discussing, informing and instigating the successful implementation of PPPs across the continent.

Africa’s infrastructure investment needs include:

Energy – Water – ICT/Telecoms – Transport/Ports/Rail – Education/Health

”The quality of discussions have been excellent. I was there for the training session as well and I felt that it was very well done and very well received… I saw there were ministerial people and parliamentarians in attendance and it is that calibre of people that attend these particular conferences and they come here to learn and to be able to go back to their countries and take the best practices scenario’s back.”

”I think this PPP event is very important for one main reason: it is to help people understand the difference between the actual risk to doing business in Africa compared to the perceived risk of doing business in Africa.”
