The European Business Council for Africa

Infrastructure development is a key driver for progress across the African continent and a critical enabler for productivity and sustainable economic growth. Investment in infrastructure accounts for over half of the recent improvement in economic growth in Africa and has the potential to achieve even more. Africa’s vast infrastructure deficit is a constraint on its growth, but also an opportunity to leapfrog to new, more efficient technologies.
