World Ready for Your Opportunities and Challenges in Africa
Driven by policy reforms, a young population and a rising middle class, Africa is undergoing an investment boom and is on pace to be one of the world’s largest economies by the middle of the century. This unprecedented growth presents immense opportunities across all sectors from traditional areas such as commodities and infrastructure to service industries--the latter already accounting for half of African GDP.
Whether you are entering African markets or seeking to expand across jurisdictions, a thorough understanding of emerging legal frameworks—both national and supranational—is a critical starting point.
In the context of Africa’s multifaceted risk environment, business leaders are faced with the need to respond to an accelerating pace of competition while complying with increasing standards for corporate conduct and performance.
