Africa Infrastructure & Power Forum
Where Deals are Made Between Chinese Investors & African Developers
The 4th annual Africa Power and Infrastructure Forum (AIPF) was held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel from the 15th – 16th October, 2015 in Beijing, China.
The rapid growth in Chinese-African trade is revolutionising development in Africa, stimulating crucial upgrades of the continent’s infrastructure and power sector and ushering a new era of prosperity.
AIPF is the pivotal meeting point 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 officially announced brand new, large-scale infrastructure and power projects with lucrative opportunities for foreign investors.
The meeting was 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.
