Infrastructure development remains critical to the development of any country. In South Africa, the government through its National Development Plan has identified infrastructure development as crucial to socioeconomic development, with government committing billions of Rands for public sector spending on infrastructure. Further, Africa has some of the world’s fastest developing economies, and is well on the way for the next big industrial revolution, with some exciting mega projects planned and projects ongoing.

In light of the drive to develop infrastructure on the continent, and to highlight projects underway in Africa, with a strong focus on South Africa and Southern Africa, Times Media published an infrastructure-focused magazine which was distributed in the Business Times in June and in November 2015. Its first successful edition was published and distributed with the Business Times in June 2014.

The content highlights major infrastructural developments (new, current or recently completed) underway in the country and on the continent, including projects within (but not limited to) the transport, water, power, housing, commercial and public services sectors. Suppliers, contractors, technology providers and major construction companies will feature, together with industry insights on infrastructure development from key industry players.
