"We cannot pretend that Africa will escape from COVID-19 unscathed. The impact of the pandemic has been significant and will be long-lasting, with the continent’s overall economic growth likely to be prolonged and uneven - but this should not deter investors" - an article by aef Sponsors, Control Risks
We cannot pretend that Africa will escape from COVID-19 unscathed. The impact of the pandemic has been significant and will be long-lasting, with the continent’s overall economic growth likely to be prolonged and uneven - but this should not deter investors. New opportunities will present themselves and could bring substantial promise to those looking to invest or grow their business in Africa, as highlighted in the 2020 Africa Risk-Reward Index issued by Control Risks and NKC African Economics, the Africa-focused subsidiary of Oxford Economics. 

Whilst the pandemic has not changed the positive long-term demographic, geopolitical and policy trends that we have outlined in the report, it has highlighted key areas of focus for investors. These include the acceleration of digital transformation in old industries, shifts in economic priorities and policies, and the importance of understanding the domestic narrative in an age of influence operations. Post-pandemic Africa will continue to offer opportunities to savvy investors, but these may be harder to find and carry new risks. Investors need to reassess these opportunities and risks in the context of how countries or sectors are likely to recover and what the new post-pandemic landscape will look like.
