Business Buzz - The State of the African Economy and free Trade Zones

Regional economic integration is in focus for this edition of the Business Buzz. Our financial expert Zanele Kunene from BDO SA gives us a round of the week’s top business news and in the Buffalo Index, we look at what your R100 can do for you in the African dashiki market.

Our main topic is around what it would take to create a pan-African economic block similar to the European Union and have better trade conditions on the continent.
Xhanti Payi, an economist and director at Nascence Advisory walks us through progress made on this front and some of the challenges still facing the continent’s efforts for regional integration.
