The Sustainable Infrastructure Development Symposium (SIDSSA) is a platform that brings together critical role-players in the infrastructure investment space, who are galvanised around a key goal of accelerating an infrastructure-led economic recovery plan.

Infrastructure investment is a critical driver of future growth of the South African economy. The provision of superior quality infrastructure allows an economy to be more efficient, improves productivity, and raises long-term growth and living standards. South Africa requires the right kind of infrastructure investment that will not only contribute to higher long-term growth, but should address spatial disparities, transform the economy and create much needed jobs. 

 The symposium is also a platform to explore partnerships between the public and private sectors and investment opportunities in infrastructure. Furthermore, the symposium is intended to shape the conversations about regulatory and policy reforms, innovative funding models for infrastructure and investing in infrastructure for a shared prosperity for all.

The third iteration of the SIDSSA is both watershed and central in that it will showcase progress on the Infrastructure Investment Plan as adopted and supported by cabinet.
