Africa in 2018 Outlook

 

 

In January, we will be hosting our annual Africa in 2018 Outlook Conference

Rich countries but poor populations. Beyond commodity dependency, African economies continue to strive toward a structural reset – some more progressive than others. With the global macro economy recovering and many commodity prices rising, Africa’s growth outlook looks more stable after a tough three years. The imperative of better governance will remain this coming year. But what of new technologies and private entrepreneurship that is creating new business models and innovative commercial practices at the so-called “base of the pyramid” in Africa’s frontier markets? 

Discussions will focus on:

  • Africa’s new winning companies
  • Building a business for the long-term in Africa
  • Can Africa industrialise?
  • A downgraded South Africa?
  • How do economies develop inclusively?
