The readers of African Business are well educated decision-makers, with a high standard of living and disposable income, who have the ultimate authority to influence business strategies in their companies. Most major companies and international firms working with or in Africa subscribe to African Business. It is required reading for any business operating in Africa or wanting to venture into the Continent.
In the historic 500th issue of African Business, out now, we look at how Africa can profit from the extraordinary demand for its critical minerals. The continent has at least a fifth of the world’s reserves in a dozen minerals that are critical for the energy transition. But African policymakers will have to navigate fierce geopolitical competition between the US and China, drive a hard bargain with miners over investment and royalties, and support domestic industries to ensure that value is captured on the continent. Can the continent avoid the resource curse this time?
