To shed light on the infrastructure backlog in Southern Africa and highlight key investment opportunities across the region, Frost & Sullivan will be hosting an online analyst briefing on Thursday 10 June 2010 at 2:00pm BST/ 3:00pm CAT. The briefing will provide insight into projects in information and communication technologies, power generation, transportation and water.

"African governments have been slow to scope, design, award and implement projects due to limited skills and financial resources," says Frost & Sullivan industrial analyst Litiya Matakala. "This briefing provides an overview of key infrastructure needs and their attractiveness in selected Southern African countries."

The discussion will include analyses of key infrastructure projects, the investment climate in Southern African countries, key and potential investment opportunities, and country and business risk.
