Is Africa the new Asia?

Africa is seeing a steady flow of multibillion-dollar investments and growing interest in regional markets. There is no lack of knowledge or resources, but Africa has suffered from political instability. Will the coming years see Africa reach its full potential and become the next frontier market?

Dr Sue Onslow (Co-Head, African International Affairs Programme, LSE IDEAS) and Zain Latif (founder of TLG Capital, a private equity firm that provides growth capital to businesses in frontier markets) will discuss the economic and political future of Africa.
