Africa Country Benchmark Report 2017

In On Africa (IOA) is proud to announce the upcoming launch of the second edition of the Africa Country Benchmark Report (ACBR) – the most comprehensive assessment of African country performance ever conducted, scheduled to be released end August 2017.

ACBR assesses the performance of all 54 African countries in an 800-page infographic-driven report. It is a key resource for any business, government, organisation or institution that will find value in country-specific and comparative assessments of all 54 African countries. The report scores, ranks and insightfully assesses each country holistically, as well as across business, economic, political and social factors.

The result is a clear view of African country performance through a comparative assessment, revealing the true country benchmarks of the continent and the institutions playing a role in its success.
