EXPAND YOUR FOOTPRINT INTO AFRICA
Presented by JCCI in collaboration with AFRICA HOUSE
Business confidence remains fragile in South Africa, with many sectors of the domestic economy
facing an uncertain 2020. However, many other African countries continue to grow at rates of 5%
or more a year and economies are expanding both in terms of sectors and size. This has been
underscored by a number of mega-project announcements that will transform not just the
recipient countries, but regional economies over the next decade as they develop. In addition to
this, the growing number of cities in Africa and the requirements to meet the needs of a new
generation of urban dwellers offers a vast range of opportunities for companies that have
products, services and the drive to exploit these opportunities.
The Africa 20-20 Vision business briefing takes a look at the political, economic and business
trends, as well as development hotspots that can be expected to drive business in the region in
2020 and beyond. It will also examine how companies can engage with the rest of the region,
where the opportunities are and what needs to be done to unlock them.
