Infrastructure in Africa: The economic growth essential

RMB’s ‘Where to Invest in Africa 2019’ guide hones in on infrastructure in Africa, for the benefit of Africa and its private and public funders alike.

Structural change is essentially the only hope for sustainable growth in Africa, and the focus should be on efficient infrastructure. In this video RMB Africa analyst Celeste Fauconnier tells Moneyweb editor Ryk van Niekerk that the continent’s private sector will have to pick up the pace, and that soft infrastructure (health, education and the ability to trade) – the key to inclusive economic growth – should enjoy equal attention.

As Celeste says , private sector does not trust thieving african govts to repay loans-

The problem with most African Governments, besides the corruption factor and sovereign risk factor, is that they do not run liquid VAT accounts.

You don’t get your VAT back in 60 days. You may apply for it back but you are never 100% sure that you get it back and they normally charge in excess of 20% VAT. That’s your profit gone.
