We know that value goes beyond a single engagement or a single result.

Value is defined by a relationship – one that is born of an intelligent, engaged, collaborative process.

With our African network, our people and experience, we’re ready to help you realise that value wherever you do business.

With more than 400 partners and over 9,000 staff in 34 countries, PwC is the largest provider of professional services in Africa. This means that we're able to provide our clients with a seamless and consistent service, wherever they do business on the continent. Our in-depth knowledge and understanding of African operating environments enables us to offer tailored tax, assurance and advisory solutions for every business challenge.

We have an established network of PwC firms in Africa, covering the Anglophone, Francophone and Lusophone speaking regions of Africa. Our network of firms in Africa collaborate with PwC in the UK, France and the wider global network to meet an increased demand for professional services, to support the growth in trade activity between Africa and the rest of the world.

The Africa Business Agenda

We first started publishing our Africa Business Agenda in 2011.

It was initially an extension report of the findings in our Global CEO Survey and we were entering unexplored terrain.

Over the years, we received an overwhelming positive response, and are now publishing it on an annual basis.

Our current Africa Business Agenda, launched in September 2014, provides an in-depth analysis and insight in how opportunities and challenges differ across the African continent.

It draws on interviews conducted with top business and government leaders for our Africa CEO Survey, as well as with PwC Africa experts, to help you understand the current business operating environments and trends in a diverse region that is expected to have the world's largest labour force by 2040.

Africa CEO Forum

PwC is sponsoring the third Africa CEO Forum​, co-organised with the African Development Bank, ​which will be held in Abidjan on the 16 and 17 March 2015.

Following the success of the first two editions of the Africa CEO Forum, over 800 prominent CEOs, financiers, political decision-makers and representatives of the international media will convene in Côte d'Ivoire to promote the African private sector and cement its role as a key player in the development of the continent.

This third edition is occurring in a particularly favorable context: there has been substantial upturn in Africa's private-sector, regional trade is growing strongly and intra-African investments are on the rise. In fact, they now account for almost 23% of all foreign direct investment across the continent.

The Africa CEO Forum is a symbol of this vitality. Since 2012, it has brought together English, French and Portuguese-speaking business leaders from all over Africa and has become an important arena for dialogue between Africa's most iconic public and private-sector decision-makers.
