KPMG Africa Conversation series: prioritising Africa’s megacities
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.
