Africa is host to some of the fastest growing economies on the planet, but idiosyncratic risks and susceptibility to external shocks mean the continent is also host to considerable growth volatility. To better support our clients to navigate volatility in Africa and drive business growth, we are pleased to announce that we have revamped our African Forecasting Service.
“For businesses who want to tap into opportunities in Africa, we bring together a global perspective and on-the-ground expertise to address the most pressing issues for Africa’s today and tomorrow. We provide up-to-date political and economic commentary, narrated into a single actionable view, enabling businesses to move with confidence in the world’s most dynamic continent,” said Noelani King Conradie, the Managing Director of Oxford Economics Africa.
