NABA Summit 2016, Session I: Infrastructure, Construction and Real Estate in West Africa

Africa is the world’s fastest urbanising region, and in West Africa alone nearly 45 % of the population is urban. The economic potential of this rapid urbanisation is evident, as the urban GDP was more than double that in the countryside in 2015.  This parallel session will examine how these developments impact infrastructure, real estate and construction, and how domestic and foreign investors can benefit from this rapid urban expansion in West Africa.
