Many expect a win for the BJP and allies to help boost infrastructure investment?

Namibia will host the 2017 Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA) Week from December 10 to 14 at the coastal town of Swakopmund.

Namibia’s Walvis Bay Corridor Group (WBCG), on Monday in a statement said PIDA Week aims to build on the achievements of the 2015 and 2016 meetings in Abidjan and the momentum to engage stakeholders on the effective delivery of infrastructure on the continent.

Amani Abou-Zeid, Commissioner for Infrastructure and Energy at the African Union Commission, said that about 500 delegates are expected in Namibia to discuss how to create synergies and mobilize support in the implementation of African Union’s Agenda 2063 infrastructure projects in Africa, with a particular emphasis on PIDA.

He said the event will offer an opportunity for delegates to unpack the enormous growth potential of increasing the visibility of PIDA projects and validating the relevance of corridors and thereby facilitating the continent’s economic transformation.

The event is organized by the African Union Commission (AUC), the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency (NPCA), the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) in collaboration with the Namibian government and the Southern African Development Community (SADC).
