The African continent presents an unparalleled wealth of opportunities, with USD 3.5 trillion of investment anticipated by 2025 across a range of industries. With two thirds of the growing African population still without access to electricity, bridging the energy gap is a key priority in the continent’s socio-economic agenda. With its undisputed position as a hub for doing business in Africa and its innovative smart city agenda, the UAE is poised to play a vital role in the continent’s development.
