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 this July-August double issue of The Africa Report, our cover story puts together an exclusive list of 50 of Africa’s most influential women in business. We also provide a ranking of Nigeria’s 36 states to show their performance on fighting poverty, providing electricity and raising revenue. We examine the EU’s efforts to tamp down migration to its shores by pouring hundreds of millions of euros into Niger. We consider President Ramaphosa efforts to present a united ANC, ahead of the 2019 elections in South Africa. Our country focus on Morocco asks whether the country’s commercial capital can make it as a continental leader. In our interview with Aristides Gomes, Prime Minister of Guinea-Bissau, he points out why the upcoming elections are necessary but will not address the country’s long-running problems. Our logistics dossier looks at the controversial ports deal in the Horn of Africa and our art & life section shows how Ejigbo, Nigeria and Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire are inextricably linked through the Yoruba community.
