Construction and Engineering
This month we carry a few articles on Construction and Engineering. Stagnation and uncertainty are serious concerns in this segment of industry, not just for the insurance industry. All eyes are on Government infrastructure programmes to provide some stimulus.
During the third week of June, President Ramaphosa hosted the Sustainable Infrastructure Development Symposium South Africa (SIDSSA). The initiative aims to increase engagement between the public and private sector at every stage of the project life cycle, from planning to financing and implementation. The goal is to “emerge with a fundable infrastructure project pipeline”. It was announced at SIDSSA that 276 projects, with a total investment value of R2.3 trillion, are currently being evaluated.
In this Construction and Engineering feature of the magazine we bring you a few different views on the realities and opportunities we have before us.
