Overview

The Summit

As this is the only conference on African infrastructure being organised by an active and key player in the sector, the focus will be on finding practical, business-oriented solutions to Africa’s infrastructure challenges.

The theme of the Summit, Building Tomorrow’s Africa Today, is a call to the public and private sectors African as well as foreign – to intensify efforts and work out practical solutions, such as how to scale up and fast-track investment, reduce lead times and ensure healthy returns on investment in order to build the Africa we want.

A clear case of doing well while doing good.

Since its establishment as a public-private institution in 2007, the AFC has invested over $ 4 billion in infrastructure projects across 26 African countries. 15 African countries have become members of the Nigeria-based organisation and more are set to follow.
