Africa Infrastructure & Power Forum
Where Deals are Made Between Chinese Investors & African Developers
This pivotal event is where real, practical change happens - each year major investment deals are closed, and these in turn have shaped the future of Africa’s infrastructure and power development. This year’s forum will feature the official announcements of brand new, large-scale infrastructure and power projects with lucrative opportunities for foreign investors. This year we welcome back our partners CADFund and The China Electricity Council, in addition to hearing from a number of key figures within the investment discussion, including several African Ministers of Energy and Infrastructure, heads of utilities, power developers and financiers.
The meeting will be underpinned by 4 major infrastructure and power projects currently shaping Africa’s energy sector.
- The East to West Land Bridge including a deep-water port in Lamu, Kenya
- East African Standard Gauge Railway
- Dry port development in Gabon and the DRC
- PPP power projects in Kenya and many more
- Each of these projects requires large scale investment and we shall be highlighting at AIPF the opportunities available across Africa.
