Argus West Africa Roads 2017

Building strategic partners for the development of the regions road industry 

West Africa boasts huge potential for the bitumen and asphalt industries, as road development continues to take place. Regulatory bodies in Ghana are working hard to put together new specifications for the country, while developments are also taking place in Nigeria, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Gabon, Ivory Coast, and Guinea. A shift in technological advancements through the development of PMB and emulsions, and companies looking at how to overcome supply issues, means that all eyes are focused on the next infrastructure projects and the prospect of doing business in the region.

The inaugural Argus West Africa Roads conference will bring together decision makers from the entire supply chain, including government officials, road authorities, construction companies, bitumen and asphalt producers, tradersinvestment banks and their service providers. Don not miss the chance to network with companies expanding into the region.
