Invitation: Does South Africa Have An Africa Strategy?

An invitation from Frontier Advisory to attend a half-day Frontier Forum on Tuesday, 2 December 2014 at the IDC in Sandton.

It is increasingly apparent to South African business that the future growth opportunity will be presented by Africa – the rapidly expanding economies of sub-Saharan Africa. Some South African firms are pioneers in their industries in expanding in Africa – for instance MTN in mobile telecoms, Naspers in media and Shoprite in retail. But is SA Inc. winning in Africa? Will SA firms retain their “first-mover” advantage? Competition is heating up from China, India, Brazil and the like – not to mention traditional multinational firms. Rapidly expanding populations and strong headline GDP growth are leading to Africa becoming more attractive for companies seeking to expand. How are South African companies fairing overall and what learnings are there from their experiences for the next generation of South African firms? What is the role of the South African Government and parastatals in supporting this African expansion and how can business and government collaborate to assist this process?

Join Frontier Advisory at this half-day Frontier Forum alongside leading Africa–focused companies as we discuss the topic “Does South Africa Have An Africa Strategy?” on Tuesday the 2nd-December 2014 at the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), Sandton, Johannesburg.
