“Women in Africa need to become more representative in most spheres, including in infrastructure sectors, they need to become more involved in the decision-making and planning of infrastructure projects and programmes”, said the afro-optimist and realist, Kaizene’s founder, Lynda Aphing-Kouassi, who is well known to be particularly passionate about the contribution of women and youth to the growth and development of the continent, she has identified the areas above as her sphere of influence.

The 6th edition of the BCW and infrastructure Conference aims to highlight the following;

  • The development of private and public partnerships (PPP)
  • The development of the infrastructure, building and civil engineering in a more adapted and dynamic way
  • The promotion of the African continent as a destination of choice for investment
  • Intensifying the production of companies
