Ranked as one of the best global consultancies in design, transportation and general building, AECOM has unveiled its 2020 Africa strategy to capitalise on growth opportunities on the continent.
Addressing a media briefing to showcase the company’s global and regional service offering and capabilities, newly-appointed chief executive, Africa Carlos Poñe (right) says that, while AECOM had a presence in 150 countries, Africa remained a strategic objective.
“Going forward, Africa will remain an key focus. It is important to note that we have both a global and a regional reach.” Poñe notes that the continent fell into the Europe, India, Middle East and Africa ‘super region’.
“This means we have a lot of international expertise and experience. For example, we have excellent engineering centres in Romania and Spain. Wherever we do not have the capabilities here, we can certainly draw on these globally,” says Poñe.
