Due to a variety of factors, Africa has suffered a significant decline in infrastructure development and maintenance. In particular economic infrastructure, typically defined as energy and power, transportation, telecommunications, clear water and sanitation facilities have lagged behind the rest of the world in quality and quantity.
In many African countries infrastructure is government-owned and although performance quality varies, in general performance is quite poor. The inadequacies of infrastructure have a detrimental impact on African economies. The lack of access to reliable sources of power, adequate sea ports, well maintained roads and rail systems, place emerging markets in African at a substantial disadvantage when competing in the global market.

We have worked in partnership with other private sector companies to facilitate investment in sea ports, airports, railways and highways projects.
