Doing more TGS Business in and with Africa: 

Working in Africa presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities for CPA firms and international businesses, shaped by the continent’s diverse economic landscapes, regulatory environments, and market dynamics. 

  • How can our professional service firms minimize problems facing business in the African continent?
    • Regulatory Complexity,
    • Political and Economic Instability,
    • Infrastructure Gaps,
    • Access to Finance,
    • Corruption,
    • Transparency and the (also a problem for many countries) Skilled Workforce Shortage. 

 

  • …and how do we build on the opportunities available?
    • Africa is experiencing Rapid Economic Growth,
    • Africa has Emerging Markets and Consumer Base,
    • explosive Digital Transformation,
    • massive Resource Richness,
    • increasing Regional Integration (like the African Continental Free Trade Area) and
    • Sustainable Development. 

 

TGS have started to paint Africa orange and we are looking forward to getting you all involved with the task.
