Africa infrastructure experts to gather in Nigeria

Rwanda construction FinLAGOS, (CAJ News) – PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari will officially open what is billed as the continent’s most critical summit on African
infrastructure, scheduled for Abuja in March.
The event will be held under the aegis of the Africa Finance Corporation (AFC) Live on the 27th and 28th “AFC Live 2017 – Connect. Engage. Innovate
– The African Infrastructure Revolution.”
The global event will bring together financiers, developers and policy makers to discuss how to increase private sector investment and deal flows
in the African infrastructure space.
The two-day event will also mark the corporation’s remarkable first decade since its inception in 2007.
It has invested over $4 billion on projects covering 26 African countries and it is setting regional benchmarks in its complementary service areas –
project development, financial advisory and principal investing.
AFC Live will showcase recent success stories and provide networking and deal making facilities.
“Today,” says Andrew Alli, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Lagos-based AFC.
Alli said investors could partner with a growing number of African institutions and private sector companies, to take advantage of the
African opportunity, as well as working with them to navigate the perceived African risk.
“The return on investment, as the AFC has proved, is considerable.”
The AFC last week signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Morocco’s Banque Centrale Populaire (BCP) aimed at increasing pan-African
collaboration in financing vital infrastructure projects in North and Sub-Saharan Africa.
