As emerging markets go through a transition, the UK government has been keen to become the continent’s investment partner of choice. Throughout the region, there has also been considerable interest in transformational infrastructure projects from countries including China and France that seek to help bring new economic growth and prosperity to local citizens.
Silwana Diamond Group, one of the most well-know investment companies in the Middle East and Africa, have been at the forefront of change in the region for the past 12 years. Chairman Dr. Feras Abu Hdaib has been a key figure in shaping some of the most ambitious projects in the region to-date.
With operations in a large number of industries including agriculture, IT, cryptocurrencies and smart housing, Silwana Diamond Group have leveraged their expertise to bring about transformational projects that make a lasting impact.
Speaking in an interview this week, Dr. Feras Abu Hdaib said, “We seek to effectively improve people’s ability to pursue a prosperous future.”
Looking at the bigger picture for emerging markets, the Chairman also remarked on how he was adapting the Group to meet changing needs. “We are looking for an unparalleled way to shape our organisation in all business aspects, develop world-class skills to achieve profitable and sustainable local development, and meet global EHS standards.”
Having already successfully completed a host of development projects from East to West Africa, Silwana Diamond Group are stepping up their expertise in sustainability to help future infrastructure projects such as fish farming and agricultural projects meet robust new international standards.
Following a recent announcement that the group would be working on a comprehensive government backed $5 billion infrastructure project for South Sudan, they have also been involved in a new import and export project for Guinea-Bissau, further expanding their reach and expertise in the region and laying the groundwork for a number of construction projects as well as public works.
As Africa continues to develop its international trade, infrastructure projects have been an important part in helping communities leverage local resources to build sustainable businesses, and infrastructure for the long-term.
