Getting your African market entry strategy right

How to enter African markets with confidence

Many global companies want to set up or expand their operations in Africa to participate in the rapid growth that the region is enjoying. But Africa is fragmented and complex, underscoring the need for experienced guidance in selecting priority markets and designing how best to enter them.
