Rethinking government capacity in Gabon: leveraging the private sector

As part of the Bechtel/CSIS series on Infrastructure and Sustainability, the discussion centered on innovative ways of building government capacity in African governments, focusing on how private sector actors, governments, and multilateral institutions can support effective planning and management of infrastructure development to promote sustained, inclusive development and economic transformation. Bechtel’s partnership with the Government of Gabon to develop, design, and execute a national infrastructure plan to promote economic growth and sustainable outcomes was an integral case study.
