Africa has been identified as one of the leading regions in implementing regulatory reforms to improve their business climate. The environment for investing in Africa’s infrastructure has improved considerably in recent years and is getting better over time, said Mr. Abdalla Hamdok, the Deputy Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) during his keynote address at the Africa-Japan Business Investment Forum currently taking place in Addis Ababa. Titled “Quality Infrastructure of Africa’s structural transformation: Opportunities for the Business Sector”, Mr. Hamdok’s speech referred the attending business delegates to the program for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA), a strategic framework which provides a unified platform for engagement among African countries and between African countries and their development partners for the continent’s infrastructure development.
