Preparations are advanced for the Power Africa Summit set to hold from the 27th to the 29th of January, 2016 in Washington, U.S.A, according to Footprint to Africa.
The event will see participation of more than 150 stakeholders attending from across Africa.
According to Veronica Bolton-Smith, Programme Manager for the Power Africa Summit, the officials contributing are long standing investors with both operational projects as well as a significant project pipeline.
“The 150 plus stakeholders attending from 12 countries across Africa are equally credible, with a long history of international partnerships and project success,” she said. “This gathering of project owners and investors is certainly what makes the Summit so exciting and a must attend meeting for those with the ability to play a role.”
Those set to attend include Ministers of Energy from Africa, heads of African utilities and regulatory bodies, US-based private equity houses and wealth management establishments.
The Power Africa Summit enables dialogue between public and private sector decision-makers across the US and Africa.
A brainchild of US President Barack Obama, it promotes the investment opportunities in Africa’s power sector.
