See where we are in Africa

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.

Into Africa: The continent’s Cities of Opportunities

Into Africa: The continent’s Cities of Opportunities

The megatrends, as we call them in PwC, are colliding across Africa. The growing middle class, strong demographic growth with an improving age mix, technological innovation that we have already seen in mobile payments and a growing choice of investment partners from the global south as well as fast-paced urbanisation are all shaping what the future of Africa could look like.

In this, our first Into Africa: The continent's Cities of Opportunities report, we explore these megatrends, identifying 20 of the cities that we judge to be among the most dynamic. Also, this report assesses how the cities are performing not only on a current overall level but also with a ‘forward-looking’ opportunity lens, where we reveal the cities that are hidden gems.

Africa is at an exceptional historical crossroad, if there was ever a moment for an entire continent to seize the day, this is it.
