The essential business magazine.
The Africa Report is the international publication of reference dedicated to African affairs, anticipating economic and political changes in Africa and relied upon for the independent expertise in its surveys, sector reports and country focus in each issue. The magazine is the highest-circulated, most-respected Anglophone pan African monthly magazine, and the only media to have been awarded Media of the Year three times. Its readers are made up of African political and economic decision-makers and foreign institutions as well as private investors.
Each issue contains news, business and current affairs, as well as a country focus; special supplements highlighting different country’s unique potential and dossiers on the continent’s essential industries. Each year we also publish the TOP 500 African companies and TOP 200 African Banks.
In the November 2018 issue, we have three strong regional stories. From Nigeria, we interview Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate for the People’s Democratic Party of Nigeria, about turning the presidential election into a battle of substance and style. From DRC, an end is in sight to the grinding conflict over President Kabila’s overstaying in power. Our country focus on Ghana considers how the initial euphoria at President Nana Akufo-Addo’s election in 2017 has dissipated, as his plans are weighed down by a creaky bureaucracy, partisan point-scoring and sums that don’t add up. In South Africa, President Ramaphosa’s government is pushing through National Health Insurance legislation despite opposition and complaints of lack of clarity. In our business section, we consider the financial sector in Mauritius, which is at a crossroads as changes to a treaty with India mean it has to look to new markets in Africa. Our telecoms dossier considers the price wars between Kenya’s Airtel and Safaricom and our art & life section has a wealth of interesting articles, including a review of the 1-54 African art fair in London.
