Business Sweden and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs invite Swedish companies to participate in a delegation with the purpose of capturing the business opportunities connected to investments in upgrading of, as well as construction of new, airports in Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya.
East Africa is currently one of the major hot-spots when it comes to airport related investments. The ongoing and upcoming projects in Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda have a total value of more than 2 billion USD. Kenya is currently implementing an expansion of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), the major component being the construction of a greenfield terminal. Rwanda, the region’s fastest-growing economy, is planning a new airport, Bugesera International Airport, to ease the pressure on Kigali International Airport. In Uganda, Entebbe International Airport is experiencing capacity constraints and it will be expanded following the just-released 20-year master plan for the country’s aviation industry.
Both the African Development Bank, the World Bank and the European Investment Bank are active in the region within this sector.
Join us in the delegation to Kigali, Entebbe and Nairobi on November 17 -20 for the opportunity to meet with key decision makers from the Ministry of Transport, Airport Authority, Civil Aviation Authority, airlines, financing institutions as well as relevant contractors in charge of the projects in the respective countries. The delegation program and more information about the airport sector can be found in the document here enclosed.
