2017 will continue to pose challenges to many Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) markets. Global factors, such as ongoing currency volatility, low commodity prices, and slow growth in large markets such as China and Europe, will continue to put pressure on SSA economies.
As governments become more protectionist and seek to shore up their revenues, multinational companies (MNCs) will also experience rising business costs in select countries. Coupled with local developments, such as political mismanagement, these dynamics will exacerbate existing differences in resilience across SSA and create clear winners and losers across the continent.
Effective political leadership and the implementation of business-friendly reforms will become even more critical to supporting growth. This shifting landscape will push MNCs to revisit their market portfolios and adapt country and sub-regional strategies.
