"While at this stage the Covid-19 epidemic's lasting economic impact is still unknown," says the African Utility Week and POWERGEN Africa event director, "African economies are expected to be hit the hardest and there can be no doubt that the effects on all aspects of the economy will be keenly felt. The public sector utilities delivering crucial electricity and water services as well as the companies servicing these sectors, ranging from multinationals to SMMEs, will not be spared either. 2020 is our event's 20th anniversary and we remain committed to the African power and water sectors and we are excited to explore new digital formats to support connections across the continent."
