2018 : Year of Africa ?

Africa is the continent of the 21th century, economists predict. While global growth should not exceed 2% according to the International Monetary Fund, all eyes are focussed on the African continent. However, the year 2018 will be characterised by many political and economic challenges. Will the continent succeed in realizing the hopes pinned on this new year ?

Issue of the month: French touch, the alternative for a France in decline in Africa While France is seeking to reposition itself in Africa, French SMEs are redoubling their competitiveness, particularly in Ntic and ENR. French Tech thus participates in strengthening the French economic presence in the continent. Because these SMEs play their role in taking a local partner to limit the risks; creation of local jobs and transfer of skills, because of the  lack of means they do not appeal to expatriates and therefore train internally, and ultimately participate in the creation of local added value. And that's what African leaders are expecting from their partners today. The French Touch a new chance for France in Africa? This is the question raised by our issue of the month, realized on the fringes of the Africa Meetings which were held at the beginning of October in Abidjan, Tunis and Nairobi, through interviews of French and African actors, reports on French SMEs that change the game in the continent, and videos.

As Africa continues on its path to development, emerging for the most ambitious, and facing enormous challenges, education appears to be the key to a stronger, more equitable and prosperous Africa. But what school for tomorrow? What model should Africa adapt, or invent? What role for the private sector? How can we avoid a two-speed school, in other words, performing institutions for the privileged and dilapidated public schools and outdated programs for the rest of the population? How to integrate vocational training, an emergency to respond to the needs of a changing Africa and limit the number of unemployed diplomas, a time bomb ....

Funding: is Africa sovereign?  For Africa, and more specifically West Africa, mobilizing capital in the continent remains a major challenge. Despite existing mechanisms,- whether from the States, institutions, funds, central banks, south-south cooperation or even from the private sector, many people consider that the resources are still too conditional. The same applies to the CFA currency, whose pegging to the euro raises, for some people, the issue of currency autonomy ... In other words, are African States sovereign financially, or at least autonomous?   "Funding: is Africa sovereign?" Here is the month of record.

Terrorism Threatening African Economies The terrorist threat is pressing and present in Africa. Several countries have been the target of attacks that have caused dozens of fatalities and hundreds of casualties. It is the case in Tunisia in the North, Chad and Cameroun in the Centre, and in the West, in Nigeria, Mali, Burkina Faso and more recently, Ivory Coast. The killings have convinced a lot of Westerners – often the target of those attacks – to stay away from the continent, while diplomatic missions increasingly advise against traveling in the region. Africa ends up with fewer visitors – tourists and investors alike – which is not without consequences on the economy of the continent. ANA looks into this burning issue in its Monthly Report.
