Africa-ME is a news site dedicated to understanding the challenges and opportunities present in one of the fastest growing regions in the world. In particular, we seek to bring our readers news that can help guide business and investment decisions in this rapidly-evolving region. In addition to business news and profiles, we try to give a comprehensive view of the business landscape by covering relevant political stories in the region.
I studied political economy in the US and previously worked as a financial analyst specializing in the Africa/Middle East region. I’ve spent time working in a variety of countries in the region, including Morocco and the UAE. After three decades in the field, I decided to move to part-time freelance consulting and started the Africa-M.E. website to share my knowledge of the region with a wider audience.
I grew up in Nigeria before going to the UK to study international business. After university I decided to return home and work with Nigerian businesses to help them expand into African markets and beyond. I’m particularly interested in understanding the challenges and opportunities facing businesses looking to move into this quickly emerging region and like to keep up on the latest developments in the field.
