Power Africa to Follow Davos

After the greed and leverage boys meet for deal making in Davos, Switzerland January 20-23rd they can fly to Washington, D.C. for the Power Africa Summit which runs January 27-29.

The Powering Africa: Summit is a meeting place to enable dialogue between public and private sector decision-makers across the US and Africa, promoting the investment opportunities in Africa's power sector. Those attending will include Ministers of Energy from Africa, heads of African utilities and regulatory bodies, US-based private equity houses and wealth management establishments.

The most notable of these are Blackstone, KKR, the Abraaj Group and the Carlyle Group, who have invested billions of dollars in pursuit of cornerstone energy projects that will draw directly on the spending power of the consumer.  
January looks like a busy month for global tampering for the PEU boys.
