Why Attend?

Africa is unique. It is crucial to understand the continent where the economy has boomed for the past decade. As the economy boomed the needs for infrastructure growth is inevitable. Partnership with the private sector to meet these infrastructure demand is given, however the question is whether the project will be able to meet the needs of public sector and commercially viable for the private sector. The opportunity is huge if we can strike a balance between public needs and commercial viability of a project. This is what we are trying to achieve in this summit.

For the past 3 years we had received requests from many countries in Africa to a conference that would gather both public and private sectors in order to put everyone in the same page. The Africa PPPs Investment and Development Summit (APIDS) 2014 will provide this platform and enable the discussion needed to get PPPs initiatives in Africa moving.

Ghana has been selected as venue of this summit as the country is in the early stage of PPPs implementation and presents many investment opportunities for various entities with expertise in PPPs.

We are looking at both networking and capacity building through this summit. APIDS 2014 provides many great opportunities for capacity building as various international best practices will be demonstrated through case studies.
