GLOBAL TELECONFERENCE: Africa
October 16, 2012
12:00pm - 1:00pm EST
GLOBAL WEB SEMINAR: Africa
In today’s global economy, emerging markets in Africa remain surprisingly unchartered territories for U.S. corporations despite the fact that they offer huge untapped opportunities. Many American organizations are not, as a rule, investing in exploration of the region, most likely because a large part of the U.S. business community is woefully lacking in knowledge of how these local cultures operate. Yet, there is little doubt that those U.S. companies with the vision and determination to learn about and capitalize on all they can will be handsomely rewarded, as some forward-thinking Chinese corporations have already been.
This global teleconference will highlight the reasons U.S. organizations may be missing the boat from a global versus U.S. perspective. Among the key trends to be analyzed include the socio-economic factors (the rising youth movement, government modification of policies to encourage private investment, and individual market characteristics that may allow businesses to capitalize on a wealth of opportunities); environmental factors (the mineral-rich landscapes, issues surrounding climate change, and diminishing natural resources in communities with exponentially growing populations); and demographic factors (population and workforce migration, regional religious implications, and the roles of women and LGBT in extremely conservative cultures). Learn how various cultures in African markets can affect the ability of U.S. companies to make business inroads and create new and exciting opportunities for U.S. brands.
