To me, the gentleman is absolute right. The enviroment is not enabling at all. To survive in business in african you have to be agressive and determine in whatever you do.
We all need the Politicians too in order to do business, because without them, you might not be able to survive the enviroments. I have done business before in africa. I am still going to do more in the future.
Africa still remains a virgins continents. That is why China is investing there, aggressively.
Networking is also the key to any successful business partneships.
I totally believes that anything you set your minds to do you can do it.
