On 4 September, the Doka production facility in Russia was officially opened. The aim is to tap into the huge potential of the Russian market, particularly in the residential and commercial construction sector. The new facility is located in the Lipetsk special economic zone, some 400 km south-east of Moscow, where a good infrastructure is in place for companies to do business.

Across the continent and including South Africa, the majority of large-scale construction projects for infrastructure and renewable energy plants are undertaken through public-private partnership (PPP) agreements between governments and business investors.  It takes these projects into a space where politics, regulation and corporate governance play distinct roles in how agreements are formulated and implemented for mega construction projects, according to Tirelo Tsheoga, Head of Distribution in Sub-Saharan Africa for Chubb South Africa.
