BMI Publishes New Special Report, ‘Africa: Making Sense Of The Infrastructure Deficit’

Business Monitor International (BMI) has just published Africa: Making Sense Of The Infrastructure Deficit, a new special report that examines Sub-Saharan Africa’s physical infrastructure deficiencies, and the associated opportunities and risks for investors.

The report outlines the ways in which the physical infrastructure shortfall is impacting economic and social development on the continent, the steps being made to address this issue and how likely these are to succeed, given the projects that are in progress and the financing options which are available. These considerations will help investors identify and assess investment opportunities and risks for their businesses in the medium to long term, and will be of particular benefit to companies that are considering moving into one of the global economy’s final frontiers of growth, as well as companies currently operating in African markets.

The special report answers key questions, such as:

  • How is Africa’s infrastructure deficit harming development? What are the macroeconomic and political impacts of the infrastructure shortfall?
  • What are the main infrastructure projects within the region and to what extent will they assist in addressing the shortfall?
  • How will the existing financing models for African infrastructure investment perform, and which will be the most effective in the years ahead?

The special report draws on BMI’s 28 years of experience to critically assess African markets, helping investors better understand the opportunities and challenges facing the region going into 2013 and beyond.
