Africa's infrastructure: A Time for Transformation

Watching this 5 minute video, I learned, for example, this:

- Only 5% of Africa’s farmland is irrigated.
- Only 25% of all Africans have access to electricity.
- 30 African countries experience chronic power shortages.
- High transportation costs increase prices of goods by 75%.
- African infrastructure services are twice as expensive as elsewhere.
