3月7日报道,尼在60、70年代曾是棕榈业的全球领军者,在随后的30、40年里被印度尼西亚、马来西亚取代。追溯到1960年此前的100年间,尼与刚果曾曾经雄居全球棕榈业霸主地位,尼产棕榈油出口到欧、美、亚和全球其他地区。早在1911年,西非英属殖民国年产棕榈油即达到15.7万吨,而其中75%来自尼。随着石油的发现,和随后几年脱离英殖民统治,尼棕榈业开始走下坡路。

尼-土商业论坛在首都阿布贾召开,150家来自土耳其的企业家和尼商业伙伴进行了交流。尼商业、工业、矿业与农业商会主席梅西做大会发言。他谈到,外国投资者愿来尼投资,首先会希翼看到尼有良好的基础设施,再有希翼见证本地投资者能顺利开展投资。如果本地投资者都面临种种困难,外来投资者肯定会因而打退堂鼓。 为吸引更多投资者,梅西对尼政府提出几点建议:首先,政府应完善电力、道路等基础设施建设;其次,设立各类税收优惠鼓励政策;再有,对农业、工业、矿业等重点发展行业,设立专项扶持资金。 梅西同时呼吁投资者,加强对当地小型企业技术转让工作,只有投资者与当地企业实现共赢,行业发展才会更顺利、持久

喀麦隆研究制定数字经济发展战略| glObserver Global Economics | globserver africa | Scoop.it
喀麦隆邮电部部长米奈特•黎波•李•李肯(MinetteLibom Li Likeng) 在首都雅温得的会议大厦主持了“喀麦隆数字经济主题日”活动,邀请了政府、企业等各界代表共同围绕着“在喀麦隆成为新兴国家的道路上,数字经济在公共政策中的地位”这一主题展开了48小时的头脑风暴。 据讲解,现时喀麦隆互联网渗透率还比较低,全国有300万互联网用户,3G网络的渗透率只有2%;而ICT技术对国民生产总值的贡献率大约是5%。全国骨干网、国际海底光缆、还有网络数据交换中心等方面的不足,制约着数字经济的长足发展。

南非就业市场面临困难| glObserver Global Economics | globserver africa | Scoop.it
南非的农业、矿业还有零售业在第2季度仍很难扩大就业,因为雇主们希翼控制成本以免破产。 根据南非统计局的官方数据,南非的失业率为24%,相当于有约520万人失业。新增就业困难的前景对南非停滞不前的经济来说相当不利,同样也反映了企业营商环境不佳。

A.T. Kearney ranks Gabon and Botswana as Africa’s top retail markets | glObserver Global Economics

In recent years there have been growing interest in sub-Saharan Africa’s formal retail industry. While most sales are still through informal channels like open-air markets and kiosks, modern retailers (both African and international companies) are growing their footprint.
Michael Malka's insight:

In its recently published 2015 African Retail Development Index, consultancy A.T. Kearney ranks African nations according to their attractiveness for retail expansion, both presently and for the next. Nations were scored on four variables – market attractiveness, country and business risk, market saturation, and the time pressure to enter or expand in the market.

阿媒认为迪拜将继续成为商人的天堂| glObserver Global Economics | globserver africa | Scoop.it
《海湾时报》3月8日解析报道,迪拜将继续发挥国际企业地区中心的作用。 中东、非洲和南亚地区人口众多、消费潜力巨大,是国际企业的重要市场。不过这些地区也存在不少问题,比如基础设施原始化、当地民众不太友善、法律不够完善等,无法提供有益的经商环境,保障国际企业的利益。 然而迪拜与众不同。在过去的数年中,迪拜已远超所有竞争者,发展成为国际企业群集的中心。 在石油开发之前,迪拜只是一个宁静的海边小城。而在此之后,与其他产油国家严峻依赖石油产业不同,迪拜政府关注多元并举,尤其是房地产业发展和基础设施建设,包含兴建世界一流的航空港和海港。现时,迪拜已发展成全球最具活力且配套设施最完善的城市,并充分利用地理位置优势,成为沟通东西方世界的重要桥梁。

The Bankers Committee said it has set a target of N300 billion to boost lending to Small and Medium Scale Enterprises (SMEs) and the agriculture sector in 2016.
Michael Malka's insight:

Mr. Emefiele said that the facilities would not only be for SMEs, but as well to large scale farming companies.

On the agriculture, he said its price chain needed to be de-risked to allow banks grant facilities to farmers to stimulate increase in the economy.

Mr. Emefiele said that the bankers agreed that de-risking those price chains in the agriculture would encourage large scale farming and boost productivity in the sector.

Resumption of Burundi talks offers chance for peace| glObserver Global Economics

Negotiations aimed at ending the Burundi crisis resumed in Uganda on Monday with rival parities expressing commitment to the process.

"This is a luck for them to sit down around the same table, and discuss the issues for them. There is a lot of hope in this dialogue, both within Burundi and the wider international community," he said.

Young Tanzanian switching on rural areas with solar energy| glObserver Global Economics

Young Tanzanian switching on rural areas with solar energy| glObserver Global Economics | globserver africa | Scoop.it
In 2003, nine-year-old George Mtemahanji left his home in Ifakara, a small rural town in Tanzania’s Kilombero District, to move to Italy where his mother had managed to fasten work. It was eight years before he was able to return to his birth town, and he was surprised to see it faced the same problems it had at the same time as he left.
Michael Malka's insight:

“Electricity supply is really significant for the development of a country. Without electricity, New York or Johannesburg would just be villages – they’d be like Ifakara.”

At the time he was doing a technician course in renewable energy and instantly saw the potential for solar energy solutions in the region. For starters, he knew they were cheaper to maintain than the traditional power plants; were not impacted by fluctuating prices of petrol or diesel; and required less investment in infrastructure as they did not need kilometres of transmission lines to connect rural areas. In fact, he thought it was bizarre that solar solutions were not being deployed by presently.
