Despite the global slow-down in the natural resources market, the Africa infrastructure sector remains resilient and has turned a new page. Both Federal and State Governments in various African countries are investing more in infrastructure projects in partnership with both indigenous and foreign investors. The private sector is fully engaged in Africa infrastructure transformation through cutting-edge innovations, acquisitions, privatisation, concessions and PPPs projects among others. The prospects for infrastructure business opportunities in Africa cannot be over emphasized; indeed, this is just the start of the story.
