Deloitte has just published its Africa Construction Trends Report 2015. The number of projects qualifying for inclusion in 2015 is 301, a 17 percent increase over 2014.
The report dispels some myths about the perceived overwhelming role of China in the construction of infrastructure in Africa. International development finance institutions funded most of the projects in 2015 followed by African governments, an amalgamation of participation by individual countries, and then China on a stand-alone basis. China is the owner of only one project but is involved in the funding of 13 projects (4 percent) and heavily present in the construction of 42 projects (15 percent).
