Launched in partnership and under the endorsement of the Ministry of Works & Transport, Uganda and co-hosted by the East African Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (EACCIA), the 2nd Project East Africa Summit returns to the region, as the platform for leading decision makers to engage with international and local investors and showcase the abundance of infrastructure opportunities available throughout East Africa.
The region’s long-term growth prospects are solid. With a strong economy and one of the fastest growth rates in the world, combined with Kenya’s recent repeat Presidential election; interest in investment in projects like the Lamu Port South Sudan Ethiopia Transport (LAPSSET) is rife and core to helping to achieve the objectives of Vision 2030 and the aspirations that ‘the economy will enjoy a high economic growth rate to propel the country to middle-income status.’ (Vision 2030 Director General, Julius Muia Sep. 17)
Project East Africa 2019 will showcase the developments that are central to long-term investment needed, covering areas including;
- Public works and transportation
- Water and electricity
- Infrastructure for oil and gas
It will give international and domestic organisations the chance to participate in these turnkey projects and infrastructure contracts via an unparalleled route to meet those directly responsible.
