The smooth and efficient interaction between African businesses and their service providers is of paramount importance to the continent’s unlocking of vast potential. It is in this context that Africa Professional Services Group (APSG) and Rwanda Finance Limited (RFL) are collaborating to create another cutting-edge research project.
The response to our first two reports: “A Modern Africa. A Modern IFC” and “Realising and Facilitating Pan-African Investment” has been phenomenal and we expect to be delivering the same degree of insight in this third report in the series.
Seeking to unearth the true state-of-play between growth-hungry businesses and their service providers including: legal, tax, corporate, insurance, and more, we will deliver insights into how both corporates, and their advisors, are positioning and adapting to ensure maximum efficiency and success.
Ensure that your input is present and take the “Unlocking business and Corporate Services expansion opportunities across Africa” research survey today to help us answer questions such as:
Where are African multinationals having to deploy most resources to achieve their expansion goals? Are regulatory burdens driving up legal bills or do unequal tax regimes mean it is the accountancy bills which are spiking?
What is attracting Corporate Service providers to new African markets? Is it enough for them to see a ‘critical mass’ of potential customers in a particular market or is regulatory transparency or physical infrastructure a prerequisite to market-entry?
Commenting on the next stage of the research partnership, RFL Chief Operating Officer, Hortense Mudenge, said;
““The research we have conducted over the past couple of months has shown a great need and opportunity for investment in Africa and the key role IFCs are playing in facilitating greater capital deployment on the continent. The question now becomes how quickly IFCs can spur the growth of businesses as they establish and expand their operations easily and cost effectively. It is critical we understand their needs and requirements as the KIFC aspires to become a catalyzer to Pan-African businesses growth.”
“We’re excited to be entering this new stage of collaboration with the KIFC. Understanding the specific needs and requirements of business pursuing growth across multiple African jurisdictions is of utmost importance and it’s great to be working with another forward-thinking organisation such as the KIFC in delivering this analysis to our communities.”
