Taking Business Into Africa

Africa as a market is still considered a ‘high risk’ emerging market, and even when broken down into regions or individual sovereign states, each country has its individual challenges. These challenges are not insurmountable however, and we are here to ensure that your engagement with the continent is as smooth and seamless as possible.

And how do we do this? By ensuring you have a robust, thought-out market entry/engagement strategy broken down into short, medium and long-term achievable goals. Just like entering any other market, you must plan, commit and execute, and ETK has the knowledge, experience and access that will ensure your business meets its set goals.

East Africa

The East Africa Region is made up of 19 countries many of which have English or French, and in some cases both, as national languages in addition to the various local languages

There are however a number of countries located in the eastern part of Africa that are considered part of Southern Africa such as Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique. The main trade bloc in the East Africa region is called the East Africa Community (EAC). EAC is composed of 6 countries namely Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan and Tanzania. In 2010, the EAC launched its own common market for goods, labour, and capital within the region, with the goal of creating a common currency eventually. With a market size of over 150 million people, EAC is one of the most active trade blocs both for international as well as intra-Africa trade.

“When things have not gone to plan you’ve worked hard to create a calm, clear path and without your knowledge we would have struggled - for that I’m truly appreciative… thank you for holding up your end of the deal and long may this continue.”

North Africa

The North Africa region, as recognised by the United Nations, is made up of 6 countries (7 if you include Western Sahara).

Though part of Africa, the North Africa region is mainly Arab speaking and the countries in this region share a common ethnic, cultural and linguistic identity that is unique to this region. With a total population of over 186 million it presents a ready market for investors as was evident in 2014 with capital investment into North Africa more than doubling from $10bn to $26bn. FDI into Egypt particularly grew by 14% to $4.8 billion with Morocco a close second with a 9% increase to $3.6 billion The region tends to be dealt with as part of the Middle East, so it is not uncommon to hear the term MENA (Middle East & North Africa). The main trading bloc for this region is the Arab Maghreb Union (AMU) made of five of the seven North African countries.
