BBC launches TV series dedicated to African business

BBC World News has launched the Africa Business Report, a new show focussed on the benefits and challenges of doing business on the continent. The programme will aim to capture some of the energy and diversity of business life in Africa.

Presenter Komla Dumor, former Joy FM Super Morning Show host, will travel the continent meeting entrepreneurs and businessmen shaping the African economic landscape.

“It’s a privilege to present Africa Business Report during a time in which the continent is developing its economic growth and business future. I’ve had the opportunity to travel the world but it’s in Africa where I feel a real energy emerging from a generation of young entrepreneurs who are determined to compete on a global scale,” said Dumor.

The first programme, to be flighted on the 22 August, will focus on South Africa – the most powerful economy in Africa. There’ll be a special report looking into the foundations of the country’s construction boom, and a look at how one small business owner is making money ahead of the arrival of the South Africa 2010 World Cup.

“Africa Business Report will offer BBC World News viewers a revealing insight into the stories behind the continent’s increasingly successful and diverse business culture. We’re delighted to have Skye Bank as sponsor for what should be a very interesting series,” says Sean O’ Hara, regional director at BBC advertising sales.

The future of the world is Africa

The African Business Weblog is dedicated to contributing to the learning environment, diversity and global opportunities in African business, investing, media, internet marketing, workshops, conferences, stock markets, venture capital, tourism, blogs, web 2.0, africa SEO and other innovative business strategies for Africa.
