Descript vii, 77 p. : charts, graphs, tables


This booklet explores why, despite considerable efforts by African countries to improve their investment climate over the past decade, the expected surge of foreign direct investment into Africa as a whole has not occurred. The main reason is that, too often, potential investors discount the African continent as a location for investment as a result of a negative image of the region as a whole, which conceals the complex diversity of economic performance and the existence of investment opportunities in individual countries. As investing in Africa has proven to be highly profitable fairly consistently over time, direct investors need therefore to differentiate. They need to look at Africa country by country, sector by sector, and opportunity by opportunity. As in other continents, there are profitable investment opportunities to be found. [English only]
