Next Stop: Sustainability
Our annual bumper edition of Africa
Outlook always takes the opportunity to kick-start the new year with a look ahead to the key industrial trends expected to dictate the continent’s economic growth over the following
12 months. And 2018 is certainly no different.
Driven in part by our equally traditional, yearly overview of the
Mining Indaba, industries across manufacturing, oil & gas, retail, technology, construction and logistics also help to contribute to one of our biggest ever issues. And by-andlarge, each success story can be accumulated under one recurring theme: sustainability.
The African arm of South American bus building heavyweight, Marcopolo sets the tone perfectly to this end, showcasing the Company’s plan for a localised, lean evolution on the continent; and helping the edition embark on its journey across numerous, similarly focused industry-leaders.
Servaco PPS and Puma Energy - across both its Malawian and Ghanaian operations - help to bridge the industry-CSR gap in ensuring optimum oil & gas provision in an efficient manner; while Tanzania International Container Terminal Services (TICTS) and DP World Maputo showcase their innovative approaches to port logistics, shipment efficiencies, and trade facilitation.
Sustainability can present itself in all manner of ways of course, and Computech Limited addresses the notion in a more digitised fashion as it lays out its plans to leverage East Africa’s tech evolution. And few businesses are expected to ingratiate themselves into the local fabric of a community more than in the real estate domain. Cushman & Wakefield and its subsidiary, JHI Retail are on hand to shed light on this responsibility, and especially how Sandton City and Nelson Mandela Square are striving to evolve one of South Africa’s most populated regions.
And finally, as promised, we make our annual pilgrimage to one of Africa’s most significant ongoing events: the Investing in African Mining Indaba.
Managing Director, Alex Grose is joined by Head of Content, Harry Chapman, and Head of Investor Relations, Kael O’Sullivan to analyse 2018’s expo, and to pave the way for attendees including Minova Africa and Hummingbird Resources to share their own predictions for the sector in 2018.
