Francophone African countries have made some important steps towards positioning themselves as the continent’s next growth frontiers. The World Bank expects urban growth to make a significant contribution to GDP over coming years; with the share of Africans living in urban areas is projected to grow from 36 percent in 2010 to 50 percent by 2030. The escalating investment into the construction sector for new developments such as retail parks, housing and transport infrastructure will be key in facilitating the growth of the continent’s emergent middle class.
This event will highlight the challenges and opportunities in operating in Francophone African countries. Speakers will discuss the key trends and provide an overview of the construction and infrastructure sector in the region followed by an interactive panel discussion.
