Editorial focus
The magazine and website has been established as the leading source of high-quality information and analysis of developments in the commercial centres of Africa. Both provide business information in key areas where information supply fails to meet the increasingly specialised demand.

A team of experienced business editors and experts in 23 African countries compile information. They report on everything from politics to finance, banking, insurance, computers & technology, mining, stock markets, aviation and tourism as well as other areas of interest.
