East African governments and Kenya in particular, are now focused on infrastructure delivery and ways to close the most important infrastructure gaps in planning for new cities. Both the transport and power sectors have critical infrastructure needs in the region and ICT infrastructure is another growing sector now considered key to development. Throughout the region cement consumption is on the rise and construction sites are cropping up at a rapid rate. East Africa will be the fastest growing region in Africa in 2016 with regional growth rates reaching 6.7%. In Kenya the population of Nairobi is forecast to expand to 14 million people by 2050 and in Uganda cement consumption is forecast to increase by at least 12% over the next 3 years.
