Strategic partnership set to develop the African energy sector | Infrastructure news

Africa-Energy-Indaba-2018 logoThe Africa Energy Indaba recently announced its decision to partner with the South African Electrotechnical Export Council (SAEEC) in a bid to grow and develop the African energy sector with the SAEEC Member Companies.

The SAEEC is a Public Private Partnership between South African business and the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) established to facilitate the export growth and internationalisation of its members.

The strategic partnership between the SAEEC and the Africa Energy Indaba (AEI 2018) allows the SAEEC to be recognised as the Trade Association Partner of the event.

The meeting place of African energy experts

In its 10th year of operation AEI 2018, which is supported at a strategic level by the World Energy Council, is the meeting place for African energy ministers and other energy sector leaders and experts from the African continent.

At AEI 2018, the SAEEC will profile companies drawn from its membership base that represent South African companies that are highly regarded as solution providers for power and telecommunications infrastructure projects in Africa.

Connecting the continent

As part of the trade association partnership, the SAEEC, with the support of the dti, will also be hosting high level delegates from various African countries, including, Zambia, Kenya, Sudan, Mozambique and Tanzania at AEI 2018.

Chiboni Evans, CEO of the SAEEC says they are delighted to partner with the Africa Energy Indaba.

“The value for our member companies participating at this 10th edition of AEI is measurable and the aim is to link SAEEC members companies such as ABB, Powertech, Actom to other African businesses, projects or utilities attending the event to conduct business in the energy sector.  We believe the Africa Energy Indaba 2018 will be a conduit for the dti mandated investment led export drive into the African continent,” she concludes.
