In an era where globalization is a big agenda, Africa has a role to play. According to The Africa Competitiveness Report put together by the World Economic Forum, The World Bank, The African Development Bank and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, there is a growing International attention focused on Africa as an Investment destination and mounting talk of an African economic renaissance.
There is increasing global interest in big issues in Africa but limited competencies, policies and frameworks to combat African's big challenges. These challenges include but are not limited to food and water security, environmental degradation, pollution, climate change, unemployment, political instability etc. This is a therefore an opportunity for UK firms and organisations to consider how they fit in this emerging market.
