Digitalisation: Africa’s future
“Across Africa, eCommerce platforms flanked by payments, logistics, tourism and big data partners are starting to lift national economies. Technological disruption is transforming markets and societies across Africa in ways that wouldn’t have been possible even five years ago. And this opens huge and still largely untapped commercial potential for domestic and international businesses”
