Head of Investments and Infrastructure in the Presidency, Dr Kgosientsho Ramokgopa, will today, 22 September 2021, host the first two sessions of the Pipeline Series of webinars that will showcase infrastructure projects to potential national and international funders.

The seven-part Pipeline Series is part of the build-up to the Sustainable Infrastructure Development Symposium (SIDSSA21) which will take place on 6 and 7 October 2021 in hybrid format under the theme “Quality infrastructure for development, recovery and inclusive growth”.

The October symposium will draw from a range of stakeholders from the financing sector, business sector, academia and project sponsors.

Today’s commencement of the Pipeline Series mirrors the 2020 market-sounding engagement where infrastructure project-sponsors presented opportunities for investment and other forms of partnership to an audience of national and international funding institutions.

The Pipeline Series is aimed at increasing the supply of bankable projects that support the South Africa’s Infrastructure Investment Plan, and to showcase projects in Infrastructure South Africa’s portfolio for capital raising from national and international investors.
