Summary expansion
Africans Investing in Africa explores intra-African trade and investment by showing how, where and why Africans invest across Africa; to identify the economic, political and social experiences that hinder or stimulate investment; and to highlight examples of pan-African investors. This book is the outcome of a project conceived in 2011 by the Johannesburg-based Brenthurst Foundation and the Lago-based Tony Elumelu Foundation. The foundations, drawing on their established record of scholarship and policy advice on issues impacting Africa's economic growth and development, agreed to undertake in-depth, case-study based research into why African-owned or/and African-based companies were still struggling to succeed across multiple geographies on the continent, despite the Africa's impressive economic growth rates and overall improvements in macro-economic management
