Africa: Infrastructure needed to attract investment and potential employers

(allafrica.com) Africa is today the world fastest growing region. There is potential to attract foreign investment, trade and create jobs in Africa. Many skilled professionals are attracted to Africa recruitment agencies to help build their careers in Africa and fill vacancies in Africa.

 

Among the major roadblocks to the region is the lack of infrastructure to facilitate investment, business and creation of jobs in Africa.

 

In a recent meeting, the ministers of Infrastructure and Energy from the East African Community (EAC) have agreed that each member state will play a role in the implementation of infrastructure projects that benefit the region.

 

This will simplify and speed up the implementation of the various projects. Projects being targeted are those that may be local to a certain country, but with great benefit to more countries or other partner states and beyond.

 

Such projects include railway, roads construction, electricity as well as ports. The meeting also aimed at gathering views from each country about the priority infrastructure projects.

 

Ministers who attended the meeting are optimistic that the new approach is also a step to minimising misappropriation of funds, facilitate skills sharing as well as speeding up regional development
