NEW YORK, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Africa Mobility : Infrastructure Spend on the Rise
African infrastructure spend is climbing rapidly and is the driving force behind growth across the continent. The study looks at the major infrastructure projects in 10 of Africa's fastest growing countries. The scope includes rail, maritime, aviation, and road related investments. Mobility in Africa is at a nascent stage, with road and maritime infrastructure being more advanced than air and rail. With new investments and foreign trade increasing, African governments have invested heavily in upgrading transportation hubs and bettering safety standards, yet many of these projects fail due to differing priorities among countries. New technological advancements such as eHailing and app-based platforms such as Uber are slow to be implemented.
