Lafarge Africa launched Concrete Ideas in November 2020, a platform for policy discussions on the construction sector and built environment.
Concrete Ideas has today become not only a high-profile platform for the discussion of construction and real estate sector policies but also deliberations on broader public policy problems.
Concrete Ideas has become Lafarge Africa’s flagship knowledge-sharing platform for engaging public and private sector stakeholders in Nigeria using insights and policy best practices from the company’s global experience. Its key focus is improved construction management and policy innovations that boost the standard, safety and affordability of housing and infrastructure. Given the critical importance of the housing, infrastructure and allied sectors to economic growth and citizens’ welfare, Concrete Ideas is focusing attention on some of the most important policies for Nigeria’s economic transformation.
The inaugural edition of Concrete Ideas, 'Public and Private Sector Partnership Approaches to Rapidly Upscale the Nigerian Economic Infrastructures' was held on November 13 2020 with the Honourable Minister for Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, SAN as the special guest of honour.
