KPMG Africa Conversation series: prioritising Africa’s megacities

In our previous post, Prioritising Africa’s Megacities, we discussed the challenges and opportunities associated with the continent’s infrastructure. In addition to this, we made mention of the African megacity contenders. Our next Africa Conversation Series is set to focus on the subject of megacities. The KPMG Africa Conversation Series was launched to create a platform where we could ‘host’ panel discussions aimed at Pan African business issues. As a leading audit, tax and advisory firm, KPMG is well positioned with a broad base of expertise, to share insights drawn from business, government, and academia in order to better understand the African context.

Africa’s megacities bring major prospects

By 2030 Africa will have 760 million urban residents. By 2050 the figure is expected to grow to 1.2 billion. This rapid migration has intensified the need to develop Africa’s megacities, and infrastructure has become one of the key strategic priorities amongst senior leaders throughout Africa.

Join KPMG and our panel of experts for the first Africa Conversations Series event for 2013, broadcast live on CNBC Africa. Our discussion, titled Prioritising Africa’s Megacities, will focus on the challenges surrounding development of Africa’s next major megacities, the importance of addressing these challenges and how to prioritise development to ensure maximum benefits for business and Africa’s growing urban population.
