CCA’s U.S.Africa Infrastructure Conference the first and only conference in the United States focused solely on U.S.Africa Infrastructure – will bring together stakeholders in African economic growth to network, engage and discuss Africa’s infrastructure development and how to unleash the continent’s Next Wave of Growth.

Infrastructure is the most significant factor affecting the economic growth and development of Africa’s emerging markets. By 2030, the African continent will be home to nearly two billion people, with 175 million living in urban centers of 5 million inhabitants. High growth sectors such as agribusiness, manufacturing, fast moving consumer goods, ICT and tourism are driving a new demand for better infrastructure. As African countries compete in the global market, governments and the private sector will need to explore new sources of funding, engage new partners and adopt innovative business models and technology.
