Johannesburg - The future of Africa will be unbuilt without the right transformation and if mind-sets and the general attitude do not change, according to Frans Pienaar, chair of Inyatsi Construction.

An unbuilt future means people focus on the present without considering the importance of a sustainable future in the construction industry, he explains. This includes exploring trends and innovative ways to stay relevant in the industry.

Pienaar warns that countries such as China and India will grab development opportunities if roleplayers on the continent do not act to ensure control of the future of Africa.
