Powering Africa: Tanzania Summit
||Jan 29, 2014

||Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania
||With the UK throwing its hat into the ring for energy projects in Tanzania on the heels of America and China, millions of dollars may be wasted in misguided market intelligence for new investors believing that Africa is the land of fast deals and easy wins.
Increasing numbers of investors and technology providers are looking to Tanzania and the wider region for investment opportunities where ROI appears to be assured. However, with so much hype, what affect is the publicity having on international investors’ perspectives on returns – are they entering the market with sufficient insight to be successful, or is there potential for the lack of clarity and data to turn some great prospects sour?
Over the last 10 years, we’ve heard countless stakeholders deliver broad statements about the incredible opportunities available; however, getting beyond what is available online is essential. At the Powering Africa: Tanzania summit, 29th-31st January 2014 in Dar Es Salaam, we’re taking this exact approach, factoring in ‘scene setting’ presentations by leading advisors and investors, followed by round table debates on the challenges international organisations and stakeholders alike face in getting projects off the ground.
International firms operating locally are key and their knowledge and experience is essential to the volley of new entrants looking to invest. These insights will not only support a more pragmatic investment approach, they will also enable the public sector to understand the challenges being faced by foreign investors and help narrow the knowledge gap between both sides.
Backed by TANESCO and EWURA, as well as some of the most established power developers and gas companies operating in Tanzania, the meeting will create an environment conducive to debate and business development.
If you’re thinking of investing in Tanzania or are already part of the ‘establishment’, we hope you’ll support sector development and contribute to this sector focused meeting.
