10th Africa PPP Conference and Showcase
October 24, 2018 - October 25, 2018
Inaugurated in 2009, the African Public Private Partnerships Conference, will be celebrating its 10th edition on 24 – 25 October 2018.
Since its inception in 2009, Africa PPP has become a key platform for industry stakeholders to meet, discuss, debate and share PPP plans. Ten years later, it remains the most successful event for PPP instigation and implementation in Africa, promoting cooperation between public and private sector to reduce the infrastructure gap.
Importance of PPPs to Africa
To achieve greater economic growth and increased competitivity, it’s imperative that the development of physical infrastructure continue to be one of the key priorities for the African region. Hampered growth is only one of the consequences from not investing in physical infrastructure, developing water and sanitation infrastructure is crucial to the increase of quality of life for the populations. It is estimated that Africa will need over USD $100bn a year to close the infrastructure gaps that exist.
Governments and Public are looking into the PPP model as a mechanism to ensure the development of the required infrastructure, while not compromising on technology and expertise, all the while providing long term sustainable investment opportunities. And while African countries have different challenges from country to country, APPP serves as a Forum where experiences can be shared on how to navigate these complex policy instruments.
The 2018 edition will be held under the theme: Developing Africa’s Infrastructure by enabling investment in energy, transport and water partnerships!
