Deloitte Alchemy Africa Outlook 2020 

What is the outlook for business on the continent in 2020 and beyond?

This summary report outlines the discussions held at the Deloitte Alchemy Africa Outlook 2020, which focused on the outlook for business on the continent in 2020 and beyond.

What is the outlook for Africa’s economies and environment of business in 2020?

In the past year we have seen foreign powers from China, Japan, Russia, the United States, the EU and the UK all hold “Africa Summits”. Will this strategic interest start to reflect in their commercial flows with the African continent?

With attempts to initiate structural reform, will this coming year see green shoots of growth coming through for the leading economies South Africa and Nigeria? What then are the mega-trends for the African continent in terms of trade and investment that are emerging? And will the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (ACFTA) signed off earlier in 2019 begin to benefit economies as they begin to liberalise to freer trade? How should business and government react to the reality of climate change and its devastating impact in many African countries and regions? What then does business need to know to succeed in Africa in 2020 and beyond?

Themes discussed include:

  • How retail can capture the new emerging African consumer
  • Climate change and what it means for business and companies in Africa
  • Investing for Impact in Africa
  • Africa’s Outlook for 2020
