Bigen Africa arrives in Ghana…pledges to provide quality services to clients
By: Chris Twum
Bigen Africa, one of the leading companies in infrastructure development solutions in Africa, has made its entry into the Ghanaian market, with a pledge to provide quality services to clients.
The company strives to develop sound financial practices, leadership development, and an ongoing focus on the triple bottom-line, with particular emphasis on the social impact of all activities, in line with international best practices.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with the Business Chronicle, the Chairman of Begin Africa Dr. Iraj Abedian, observed that the African continent, in the past ten years, had improved its economic base through massive infrastructure development and good corporate governance in the continent.
“The natural endowment of resources in Africa is enormous, but for the first time in the history of Africa, we see the continent developing through labour production. The very best of the continent has improved, while the right infrastructure has been put in place,” he added.
Dr. Abedian said the continent had a huge potential of unlocking growth in its economy, adding: “We cannot have communication without having communication infrastructure; we cannot have banking without having banking infrastructure. Within the past ten years, Africa, from a low base rate has improved infrastructure base dramatically.”
He further noted that one of the key challenges underpinning the growth for development of Africa’s infrastructure was to put in place the right infrastructure which would enhance growth.
Dr. Abedian noted that the right infrastructure should enhance the growth for the next three decades without delay, which would benefit the poor.
“This means, focusing on infrastructure in meeting the lives of the poor,” he added.
Bigen Africa has a network of 14 offices across South Africa, and is represented in various African countries.
The group’s remarkable growth since its establishment in 1971 is indicative of its smarter business approach, interlocking world-class best-practices, development finance, engineering, and management consulting expertise to customise innovation.
