As 2014 draws to a close, Africa continues to dominate the investor-attractiveness centre stage, drawing interest from East and West alike. At a series of US-Africa summits, the US Government announced plans for American companies to invest USD 14 billion in Africa. From the UK, the Lord Mayor of London led investment delegations to African countries. But it is perhaps the aggressive investments from Asia and the Middle East that have got people taking notice.
This was evident in the recent ALN Annual Conference that was hosted in Dubai in November 2014. The Conference brought together all the ALN member firms and over 300 invited guests from across the different regions to discuss one thing: Investment in Africa.
In this Edition of Legal Notes, we feature a special supplement on investment from the Middle East and Asia, with insights from ALN Senior Partners and an interview with Mr. Alnoor Dhrolia, a seasoned businessman whose investments cut across the Middle East and Africa. From our ALN Members and Affiliates, we discuss the legal developments that have taken place across the Continent, all part of measures to foster sustainable investment.
