The public sector in Africa should understand and nurture the idea that increased private sector investment in infrastructure is the best way to achieve “intense job creation”, and to incentivise funding and skills transfer, says Nigerian Society of Engineers infrastructure and public-private partnerships (PPPs) committee chairperson Chidi Izuwah. He says it is important for the African public sector to create a solid legal and regulatory framework in order to attract investment. Equally important is building effective PPP units and to put in place an integrated infrastructure plan.
