Adequate infrastructure has always been cited as being among the key criteria’s in the pursuit of sustainable economic growth and social development.
The importance of infrastructure development to achieving economic posterity is a topic well canvassed. It is commonly noted that infrastructure development is a foundation on which to build an economy.
Efficient infrastructure supports economic growth, improves the quality of life, and is necessary for national security.
When we come down to the quality of life, numerous studies point at there being a direct link between investment in public infrastructure and quality of life. These include investments in transportation, power and communication facilities and social infrastructures to name a few.
According to the World Bank, infrastructure is the key to Africa’s economic turnaround and will play an even greater role in the continent’s continued development.
Kenya, in particular, is making giant strides in infrastructure and urbanization, with demarcated economic zones, commercial and residential buildings, and resorts for tourists.
The country’s infrastructure and construction industry value are expected to double between 2018 and 2020. There has already been a spike in the demand for building material and machinery.
For quality infrastructure to be in place, it is important to carry out a market survey and select the best from the best who will be able to perform magic and bring out the best. This is where the 21st edition of BuidExpo comes in handy.
Buildexpo Africa is the only show with the widest range of the latest technology in building material, mining machines, construction machinery and heavy equipment. At the 21st edition of Buildexpo, East Africa’s largest building, and construction fair, brings you exhibitors from over 40 countries who are the finest in infrastructure development to showcase what they have to offer.
