Supporting infrastructure projects on the New Silk Road——An entrepreneur's travels from China to Africa
Our speaker Bruno Lhopiteau, founder of China's largest maintenance consultancy Siveco, will share his experience developing a unique business along the New Silk Road. Based on a long experience of "maintenance with Chinese characteristics", Siveco has developed a specific approach to address the needs of infrastructure projects in China through the utilization of technological tools. Since 2008 the company enjoys a growing export business, working alongside Chinese construction companies building power plants in Southeast Asia, the Middle-East and… Africa. The presentation will show how early experience in the booming Chinese infrastructure market has led Siveco to support, among other projects in Africa, one of continent's most ambitious energy program: to meet the increasing demand for electricity, the Algerian government has launched a massive investment program, with an additional 8,400MW of capacity to be connected to the grid between 2015 and 2017. The presentation will touch on many hot topics: "Industry 4.0" technologies, Africa-China relations and western entrepreneurship in China.
