During the 23rd World Economic Forum on Africa, held earlier this year, regional and global leaders from business, government and civil society engaged in discussion around unlocking and delivering on Africa’s promise and potential. We believe that the continent will continue to show prominence as a key destination for foreign direct investment (FDI) in coming years, with Yunus Suleman, Chairman of KPMG Africa, reiterating: “Africa will continue to be one of the largest FDI destinations and will retain its position of having at least six of the fastest growing countries in the world!”
