State of Corporate Governance in Africa: An Overview of 13 Countries

The ACGN EY Research Report on the State of Corporate Governance in 13 African countries was officially launched in Maputo on 16 February 2016. The report contains a high-level overview of the current state of the corporate governance frameworks and systems in 13 countries, which include Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

There is enormous opportunity to bolster investor confidence in African economies through improvements to corporate governance. This report serves to highlight how different countries are approaching this challenge, and contains examples of how some of these countries are navigating their economies and business communities through their individual in-country corporate governance development journeys.

We appreciate you taking the time to answer a few questions to provide feedback on the report.
