EIC (European International Contractors) has published a study titled “The Case for an EU-Africa Partnership for Sustainable Infrastructure – Lessons Learned from China’s Infrastructure Delivery Model in Africa”.
On the base of its study, EIC recommends the implementation of an EU strategy consisting of three main pillars:
- Enhanced EU Infrastructure Financing: provision of adequate financing instruments for the African continent;
- Reciprocity in EU External Aid: adhering to mechanisms that ensure fair competition in face of a “systemic rival” and
- Sustainable Procurement of Infrastructure Projects: development of (compliance) instruments that make sure the Global Development Agenda is being respected in tender procedures and project implementation.
