PIDA week initiative set to happen at the Kenyatta International Conventional Centre (KICC) in Nairobi will see stakeholders active in the development agenda of the entire African continent come together to deliberate on various proposals, milestones and challenges to advance infrastructure on the continent.
Additionally, through the 7th PIDA Week, Kenya will be mapped strategically through showcasing its infrastructural development projects among them; the Lamu Port South Sudan Ethiopia Transport (LAPSSET) Corridor, the Konza Technopolis and the Nairobi Expressway among others. In this regard, Kenya will be able to provide a common framework for African stakeholders to build the infrastructure necessary to boost trade, spark growth and create more employment.
