This session will discuss the investment climate in Francophone and Lusophone Africa and the challenges and opportunities they present. Cross-border transactions are becoming increasingly complex and considered disproportionately challenging and risky by businesses and legal advisors. Lawyers who are able to demystify these challenges will play a critical leading role in helping their own and/or their clients’ businesses grow in Africa. The panellists will share their experiences on projects and transactions and focus on recent developments.
