Building BRICs: The New Scramble For Africa
By Barbara Njau
In the last decade, Africa has undergone an economic renaissance, and this is has largely been down to its new partners from the ‘global south’. The BRIC economies – Brazil, Russia, India and China – have made deep inroads into the continent, helping transform Africa into one of world’s fastest growing regions, and a viable player on the world stage.
Africa’s new partners have dramatically altered its investment landscape, creating new business opportunities across the continent.
‘Building Brics: The New Scramble For Africa’ draws from on-the-ground research to examine how some of the world’s largest corporations are fueling the growth of new markets and sectors across the continent.
As Africa’s rises as the world’s next frontier for growth, the BRICs are set to play an integral role in the continent’s economic rise.
‘Building Brics: The New Scramble for Africa’ is essential reading for executives, investors, academics and students of the region.
