The "New Africa" promises to be a key continent of the 21st century. Global financiers are seeking out opportunities in Africa. China and India are positioning themselves as major trading and investment partners. At the same time, African nations are striving to harmonize business laws and ensure a more long-term political stability in the region. The challenge for legal practitioners is to "unscramble the New Africa." This panel of multinational lawyers will offer perspectives on current issues facing this complex, emerging market.
