Meeting the surge in demand for telecom infrastructure investment
TMT Finance & Investment Africa 2014 took place at a critical time for Africa's telecom industry.
Following on from 2013, there was enormous demand for new telecoms infrastructure and services across the continent and many billions of dollars of investment and financing is required. However restructuring, consolidation and realignment of business models and portfolios is also essential to raise the investment capital.
