Transport Infrastructure in Africa
Africa has the fastest-growing population and the largest natural reserves, yet, moving goods and people has been a logistical nightmare. Africa is arguably the continent with the weakest transport infrastructure. It has a population of close to 1.4 billion people and it is growing at 2.3% per year. As per ABiQ’s forecasting tool, Africa will have close to 2.5 billion people and the youngest population in the world by 2050.
Unlike Europe or the United States, Africa has no integrated rail or road network. Except for countries such as South Africa or Egypt, most countries need to invest heavily to develop their transport infrastructure. To understand the challenges the continent faces and how can it overcome them, ABiQ is hosting a webinar on ‘Transport Infrastructure in Africa’.
The webinar will take place on 27th April, 2 PM UAE time and we will be joined by industry experts including:
- Alan Clarke – Director at HALC Africa
- Ashenafi Teshome Guta – Researcher in Economics
