Opportunities abound in East Africa's cement, concrete and construction industries! East Africa has in recent years seen exceptional growth in the construction sector, particularly around the development of new houses, multistory buildings, roads and bridges. This trend has contributed to a surging demand for building materials in particular cement and concrete. In parts of the region cement capacity, cannot keep up with the demand whilst in other parts there is an over-supply. Whilst the under-supply may provide opportunities for a number of local cement players to increase their capacity and geographic reach, a number of new players are prospecting the market to plug the deficit whilst imported cement is still being considered as viable by the industry. (At present, the region imports ab...

In August 2009, Kenya Railways (KR) decided that China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) would construct the Mombasa - Nairobi Standard Gauge Railway financed by the Export-Import Bank of China. The design speed for passenger trains is 120km/h while for freight trains 80km/h. Standards for Chinese Grade I Railway would apply in the construction and design of the railway. As the first one of Kenya in the last 100 years, it wouldreduce the travel time between Mombasa and Nairobi from 10 hours or so to about 4 hours. Moreover, the railway also serves as the first section of the Northern Corridor in East Africa, through which the imports and exports of such countries as Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Congo-Brazzaville and South Sudan would be transported.
The Tanzanian President John Magufuli laid the foundation stone for a 300 kilometre railway that will link two of the country's major hubs. He hopes it's the start of a project that will see all of Tanzania's cities linked by rail, with the goal even to build a network spreading across East Africa and beyond.

With a total length of 480 km, the Standard Gauge Railway connects Kenya’s largest cities, Nairobi and Mombasa. The SGR project is using high Chinese modern equipment and standards, the management of the project by the Chinese firm will enable the completion of the project in record time. As the first time that the standard technology has been introduced in Kenya and Africa at large, a lot of "first of it’s kinds" were setted.
Uganda says it's in the final stages of negotiations with the Exim Bank of China to finance the standard gauge railway. The railway will connect all the east african states, with each of the countries required to build their own sections. At the moment Kenya has finalized part of it's section from Mombasa to Nairobi.

The Eastern Africa region more than any region in Africa is endowed with promising great economic potential and growth opportunities. The region’s Partner States – the Republics Burundi, Kenya Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda, are fully aware of the potential and have under the Umbrella of East African Community identified the region’s poor state of infrastructure as one of the critical elements hindering speedy economic growth The idea of developing these prioritized infrastructure projects jointly is to strengthen the nascent East African Community common market and anchor it on a firm foundation of efficient transport and energy infrastructure. It is envisaged that these renewed infrastructure will spur rapid industrialization of the community economies and catapult them into middle in...
The Mombasa–Nairobi Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) is a standard gauge railway that connects the port city of Mombasa to Kenya's capital city Nairobi. The railway replaces the parallel metre-gauge railway that was originally built by the British in the 19th century. Under the East African Railway Master Plan, the Mombasa–Nairobi SGR will link up with other standard gauge railways that are being built in East Africa. Construction is already under way on Phase II of the Kenya SGR, which will extend the railway to the Uganda border by 2021
Uganda has launched the construction of its part of an East African railway system that is expected to offer seamless transport connectivity within the region. Construction will be undertaken in partnership with China harbor Engineering and the Ugandan Army. CCTV'S Isabel Nakirya reports.

The Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE) has signed an agreement with the China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) for the plan to build a 198-meter building for CBE's headquarters in Ethiopia. The building is expected to be the tallest structure in East Africa.
Africa's tallest building is being constructed right here in Nairobi. It will be 300 metres tall -- and house a hotel, restaurants, offices, a luxury shopping mall, and homes. It's hoped the ambitious project will attract tourists -- but there's still a ways to go yet.
