Today, in a context marked by the scarcity of financial resources and the uncertainties created by the international financial crisis, African States are facing serious difficulties in implementing sustainable development policies based on quality infrastructures.
To meet up the challenge, many African governments have engaged in a proactive policy in order to encourage and favor involvement of the private sector in funding governmental structuring projects. To that end, special services dedicated to PPP contracts (in the form of concessions or partnership contracts) have been created in many countries and the number of implemented contracts is higher each year.
It is therefore the ideal moment for the private sector and international investors to absorb this dynamic, in order to consider taking into account the African continent in their Investment and Expansion Strategies.
The objective of this 2017 Africa PPP forum is to create a favorable environment to trading, a proximity contributing to a productive dialogue between decision-makers and key players from the public and private sectors, international investors as well as institutions promoting Investment. The expected result is to allow this varied public to examine the opportunities and the framework for development of private investments in African countries.
