Complimentary Webinar - Rail Infrastructure in Africa is on the Rise
Rail Infrastructure Development in Africa is on the Rise
Frost & Sullivan Host a Complimentary Web Conference
CAPE TOWN – 14 June 2012 – The demand for improvement in rail infrastructure in Africa has resulted in an increase in investment in this sector. What is driving major rail infrastructure development in Africa and where is such development taking place? The Frost & Sullivan Environmental and Building Technologies business unit will be hosting a complimentary web conference discussing the analysis of investment trends into the rail infrastructure sector across select African countries (excluding South Africa). The web conference will take place on 20 June 2012, at 15:00 CAT (14:00 BST).
Rail infrastructure has been heavily under-utilised for several decades in Africa. However, recent trends indicate significant development is taking place in the sector across the continent. The revival of rail transportation in Africa is likely to drive advances in inter-regional connectivity and trade. Additionally, improving rail infrastructure is likely to reduce passenger and freight transportation costs and increase accessibility to wider markets.
“The development of rail infrastructure in Africa is critical to advancing market accessibility and promoting growth on the continent”, stated Environmental and Building Technologies Research Analyst James Milne. “Revitalisation of decrepit rail networks is likely to drive down costs associated with freight and passenger transportation. This, in turn, will help to reduce the burden exerted on road networks which are currently heavily over-utilised”.
The webinar will focus on development in countries outside of South Africa and
is ideally positioned for infrastructure investors, investment banks, development banks, rail infrastructure equipment suppliers, engineering and project management companies (EPCMs), private equity firms and logistics/supply companies by identifying key developments in rail infrastructure across the continent.
Join us to:
· Discover where major rail infrastructure investment is taking place on the continent
· Gain insight into key rail infrastructure projects
· Learn how such development is linked with identified Mega Trends taking place on the continent, and
· Identify opportunities for potential investment.
“There is a renewed appetite on the continent to drive rail infrastructure development, with a number of large, long and medium term projects in the process of implementation” Milne said.
