In the wake of this momentum, investment in connected transport corridors, basic water infrastructure, strong telecommunications connections, and commercial property development, is more than ever needed. Concrete is the best answer to catch up this delay in terms of infrastructures. Resistant, affordable, fast to use, this material will provide contractors and manufacturers with a great solution to tackle the construction market in Africa.
