ECIC participates at Infrastructure Africa Business Forum

The 6th annual Infrastructure Africa Business Forum presented stakeholders with an opportunity to unpack the enormous growth potential in addressing Africa’s infrastructure needs.

ECIC partnered with Infrastructure Africa through a sponsorship agreement which was hosted between 09 – 10 October 2018 at the Sandton Convention Centre. The two-day event will brought together businesses to explore new trading opportunities, establish new business networks, develop and form partnerships and plan a way forward to address some of the continent’s infrastructure gaps and requirements.

The business forum also brought together industry specialists, from infrastructure funding corporations including technocrats in civil, rail, water, energy, IT & telecoms sectors to explore trading opportunities and creating partnerships with a view of developing plans to address Africa’s infrastructure development constraints and promoting regional trade.

ECIC Business Development Specialist, Paul Mojalefa, participated on a discussion panel discussion under the topic: “Improving project bankability is key to bridging Africa’s infrastructure gap –  Project preparation and due diligence”.
