Feedback on "Supporting infrastructure projects on the New Silk Road" at Afcham event in Shanghai, November 10

Siveco's GM was invited to speak on the topic of "Supporting infrastructure projects on the New Silk Road" at Afcham event in Shanghai, November 10. The event was organized by African Chamber (Afcham) & French Chamber (CCIFC).


During the meeting, Bruno shared his experience developing a unique business along the New Silk Road, and how to support "China dream" to reduce the life-cycle-cost and increasing the useful lifetime of the infrastructures. The session was followed by a Q&A.




Here is the feedback from Afcham about Bruno Lhopiteau's speech:


The first keynote speaker Mr. Bruno Lhopiteau, founder of China's largest maintenance consultancy SIVECO, walked the audience through the life span of products frequently delivered by construction companies, highlighting loopholes often neglected and the consequences of such negligence. Drawing from his rich experience in that business sector, he demonstrated how government entities could regulate the construction industry to ensure greater efficiency and sustainability in the facilities delivered by construction companies. Having worked with large construction companies of diverse backgrounds on multi-million dollar projects in many countries, he pointed out the importance of having partner companies on the field to follow up on the solutions offered to companies by SIVECO. Mr. Lhopiteau, in his light humoristic style presented the achievements of his company modestly although full of ambition and excitement with his growing influence and active involvement in the much talked about New Silk Road.
