Abstract: The Africa Digest is a fortnightly e-newsletter scanning the key trends in the macro-environment and industry to promote knowledge and raise understanding of business in Africa. This issue explores: 1. Trends in Financial Services - Africa’s banking requirements are unique and varied, reflecting the needs of its uniquely diverse range of customer segments. The issues below reveal recent developments in the continent’s banking sector. 2. Trends in Investments and Economics - African economic development is performing well and attracting investments from abroad. However, those considering investments in the continent face serious challenges. This report addresses recent development related to investments and economic development. 3. Developments in the Pharmaceutical Industry - The African Digest of September 2019 addressed development of Africa’s pharmaceutical industry. Much has occurred since then. While the development and growth of the industry remains imperative, a number of issues emerge as constraints in some African countries. This is not the case throughout Africa: some countries have assigned high priority to the growth of the sector. 4. Trends in Trading - Africa is renowned for its inclination to prefer trade with external partners rather than internally. However, the continent is working to increase the degree of intra-African trade. This report addresses events and developments over recent months. 5. The UAE in Africa – a growing presence - The UAE invested heavily in Africa over the past number of years, steadily growing its footprint on the continent. Its two airlines, Emirates and Etihad, have a strong presence in Africa. Both are highly regarded by the people of the continent.
