Lex Mundi, in cooperation with The Lawyer, has published a new report, Africa 2016: Legal Strategies for Investment and Growth, which focuses on the opportunities and challenges of investing in Africa and the insights from business leaders and legal experts who participated in the 2016 Lex Mundi Emerging Africa Conference in Cape Town.

The report covers topics discussed at the conference including:

  • underlying growth drivers and investment trends;
  • implementing growth strategies in line with local development objectives;
  • changing regulatory frameworks; and
  • structuring of transactions to satisfy broad stakeholder interests and public interest concerns.

The new complimentary report, Africa 2016: Legal Strategies for Investment and Growth, elaborates on understanding the opportunity in Africa, the four major investment trends that define foreign direct investment (FDI), and the four key challenges inhibiting FDI in Africa.
