Panel: Attracting investment to African towers

10 Sep 2024
KICC Conference Room
TowerXchange Meetup Africa

Africa needs around US$500bn in investments to achieve universal broadband access. Despite this gap, the downward economic cycle has made it hard to attract investment to the continent despite the huge infrastructure gap. How can the tower industry compete for a slice of the pie, and how do investors see opportunities?

  • Investor appetites, how are investors selecting where to allocate capital?
  • Where do DFIs see opportunities to deliver economic and social value?
  • What role does private capital have to play in African towers?
  • Will foreign capital continue to dominate investments?
