The country or market entry service provides clients with a bespoke report and subsequent frequent updates. The report can cover all political risk perils covered by EXX AFRICA, while also drawing on our analysts’ extensive experience in African socio-economic impact analysis. Companies seeking to enter Africa for the first time or make a new market entry will initially face a number of obstacles. These may range from local community hostility, exposure to demands for kickbacks, regulatory hurdles, or theft of equipment. Further down the line, projects may face greater risk of contract alteration and even threats of cancellation, or demands for disproportionate new taxes. This service provides current market entry intelligence and makes actionable forecasts on a project’s risk outlook.
In terms of risk mitigation, this service may be combined with the tailored risk alerts and analysis offering to facilitate risk indicator monitoring and the stakeholder engagement offering to gain understanding of the local political dynamics and meet key political influencers.
We offer a price-competitive and fully bespoke country and market entry service. Some client case studies:
