DRA Global is widely acknowledged as the African project specialist having delivered thousands of successful projects throughout the continent, and across the EMEA region. Projects in Africa require sharpened insight of external environmental factors, such as political, economic, social and legal influences that largely determine their success. DRA Global has expertly navigated these, and many other issues, to meet the expectations of its clients despite adverse weather conditions, remote locations, skills and infrastructure shortages.
