Africa is sought, given the difficulties arising from the lack of efficient European policy toward sharing know-how, investing in research and development on projects seeking African alternative supplying sources.

Instead of such collaboration with African countries, Europe and other Western based conglomerates continue to drive their approach toward Africa through the one way ticket of exploitation and the export of African Natural Resources to the benefit of their own economies.

This kind of relation is not built on partnership or strategic alliances that could enhance each one’s abilities and resources with sustainability and renewable growing performances and results transforming African enterprises, societies and regions by giving them the tools and the means to increase their competitiveness locally, regionally and globally. 

When Western based Conglomerates and Investors will be agents of change leading to the improvement of the African business environment by implementing such approaches toward Africa; at that moment, we will have equitable relations and shared opportunities and benefits that will transform Africans into self-determined citizens in their continent, their countries and of the World.

Investors and private companies and public administrators from Western countries needs to transform their standing and approaches to Africa and present themselves in position of responsibilities and operative function to

  • Another Perception and Alternate Conception of Africa Today – Tomorrow
  • Africa needs to find itself before being explored by external forces of development and growth.
  • Multilevel economies and multilevel challenges are conflicting and antagonizing efforts of resolution and drives toward stability and performances.
  • Africa remains in a round-trip function for flying recipes of restructuration.

– Be an agent of change, for our clients, our partners, our consultants and our close and distant world as a whole and one entity.
– Create a competitive advantage through leading solutions
– Build capacity and mobilizing organizations with clear and reachable objectives
– Generate and implement efficient and effective models of sustainability and business development with lasting results and growing benefits
– Provide real and mutually rewarding opportunities for personal growth
– Work hand in hand and share success together with commitment, believes and trust.

Executives, investors and analysts from around the United States and from some European countries considered Africa and they mean the Sub-Saharan Africa as the New El Dorado given the rise of the production cost around the world, in Asia and Latin America and the conflicts taking place in the Middle East and East Europe along with the “Trade War” between the United States and China and its flooding over the question of One China how Beijing consider Taiwan while Japan is more considered about the Military capability of North Korea and the Chinese Navy promenade in the vicinity of the Japanese coast and islands.

Within such environnement shaped by Sanctions that were hailed by some high-profile politicians and media-propagandists of the Western Nations politicians as the “Economic Atomic Bank” that will annihilate the Russian Economy, its energy exports and its international commercial and financial transactions. That did not worked that way. The European Union, the United Kingdom and the United States are actually desperate to find alternative routes and sources for their supply while they are increasing the supposed difficulties for any country who is not supporting their drive of isolating the emerging countries of India and China and in the first place Russia who is actually at the forefront of the battles not just in Ukraine but in the arena of sharing power at the level of the World Space of geopolitical and strategic control and exploitation, including the central function played by the Dollar and the Euro as denomination of the entire global commerce and exchange.

Within such restrictive and squeezing interactions among old partners and old allies, the USA and Europe are in dire need to be able to overcome the burden of shutting one of the major source around the world for energy, fertilizer, grains, food, gaz, petrol and other important minerals. Such move had put the entire world economy in position of depression that is for the first time of the history of the capitalism and liberalism that has not resulted from its own intrinsic and internal contradictions or from the heightening of the international competition or from the structural means and instruments of production or even from the contradictions and the conflictual exchange existing between the Offer and the Demand and the Growth of the Purchasing Power Parity and / or from the seasonal economic variations and their impacts on the creation and distribution of value added.

Russian authorities rejected the country’s oil price cap set by Western supporters of Ukraine and threatened on Saturday to cut off supplies to countries that had approved it.

Australia, Britain, Canada, Japan, the United States and the European Union of 27 agreed on Friday to cap what they would pay for Russian oil at $60 a barrel. The limit is expected to come into effect on Monday, along with an EU embargo on Russian oil shipped by sea.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia needed to analyze the situation before deciding on a specific response, but would not agree to the price cap. Russia’s permanent representative to international organizations in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, has warned that European supporters of the cap will come to regret their decision.

“From this year Europe will live without Russian oil,” Ulyanov tweeted. “Moscow has already made it clear that it will not supply oil to countries that support anti-market price caps. Wait, very soon the EU will accuse Russia of using oil as a weapon.

The AfCFTA Country Business Index: Understanding private sector involvement in the AfCFTA: The narrative around a successful African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA)—its potential to increase intra-African trade by 15 to 25 percent, or $50 billion to $70 billion—is promising, but if African businesses do not efficiently utilize this landmark agreement, its ultimate success will be limited. Since the private sector is directly involved in cross-border trade, it is a major stakeholder and beneficiary of the AfCFTA. Thus, to better understand how African businesses are approaching the AfCFTA and, more importantly, how the AfCFTA can best support those businesses through trade, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) created the AfCFTA Country Business Index (ACBI). 

The ACBI is a new AfCFTA-focused, ease-of-doing business index and is based on a robust theoretical framework and data collection process. It enables relevant policy makers to identify bottlenecks in intra African trade at a country level, which informs the barriers impeding effective AfCFTA implementation from the perspective of the private sector.

It aims to inform African policymakers on the trade barriers and guide AfCFTA national strategies.

The ACBI aims to ensure that the African Continental Free Trade Area delivers on its projected sustainable development promises, especially for women-owned and small- and medium-sized businesses (SMEs).  

The ACBI captures three dimensions relevant to the understanding of the AfCFTA and related negotiations:  

1. The ease of trading goods across Africa;
2. Firm awareness and use of African free trade agreements (FTAs) and the AfCFTA;
3. Business environment related to trade in services, intra-African investment, intellectual property rights, and competition policy.
