TWG’s infrastructure development initiative mobilizes global financing, operators and developers to expand Africa’s infrastructure, from airports, maritime facilities and rail lines, to power, and ICT networks.

We continue to broaden our base of partners to address the region’s need for $100 billion in annual infrastructure investments.
