Infrastructure projects are among the most profitable investments any society can make, St Catherine’s College Cambridge Faculty (Professor Level) in Management Practice, Judge Business School Simon Taylor has said.
Dr Taylor said infrastructure projects when productive, could sustain a country’s economic growth for a long time.
He said in an interview in Lusaka that the excess savings in many advanced countries were channeled into financing profitable infrastructure projects in Africa.
Africa’s current state of infrastructure, he noted, needed massive adoption of the Private Public Partnership (PPP) model to accelerate infrastructure delivery.
Dr Taylor said PPP was key to closing Africa’s infrastructure gap, hence the need for African countries to embrace the concept.
He said infrastructure was important for the development of all other sectors in the country.
