Abstract This article examines the relationship between quality governance and infrastructure development. Quality governance is measured through government effectiveness (GE). GE measures the perceptions of the quality of public services, civil service and the degree of its independence from political pressures. It also captures the quality of policy formulation and implementation, as well as the credibility of the government's commitment to such policies. Similarly, infrastructure development is measured through infrastructure composite index. The study is anchored by the positivism philosophical underpinnings, with an ontological view of reality exists independent of the researcher and the epistemological view of the researcher does not influence the study since the truth can be ascertained through the measurable indicators. Furthermore, the research design is descriptive and regression in nature. The study employs secondary data accessed from world governance indicators and world bank data respectively. Their methods of data collection are upheld as is. The data was retrieved, cleaned, sorted, normalized, and analyzed using STATA. The findings indicate a positive relationship between infrastructure development and quality governance. This article highlights the need for the African continent to improve quality governance for it to attain better infrastructure development. Given that, it was only Mauritius and Seychelles with positive indicative measures above 50%.
