Abstract:

'Africa: Open for Business Part 3' is part of a series of films from Carol Pineau. Ten stories, one continent, a global world. Get ready to see Africa as you've never seen it before. Imagine an Africa with entrepreneurial spirit that is striving to take care of itself and finding African solutions to African problems. That's what you will see in this groundbreaking one-hour documentary by award-winning producer Carol Pineau. There is no denying Africa has wars, famines and natural and man-made disasters, but it also has high rises, stock markets, and internet cafes. Africa Open for Business challenges the stereotypes and proves Africa cannot be so easily defined. Africa: Open for Business offers a tour of the continent, profiling ten companies throughout Africa. Some operate in countries with good governance. One operates in a country with no government! What they have in common is hard work and good business sense. Taken together, they are inspiring stories of human force of will. This is the Africa you don't see on the nightly news. They are the real stories on the ground - the successes, the struggles, the challenges, and the solutions. Together, they are building Africa one business at a time. "No business school's curriculum in international business can be deemed complete without a case study analysis of Africa Open for Business."--Prof. Willie B. Lamouse-Smith, Univ. of Maryland. Africa: Open for Business was directed and produced by Carol Pineau, a journalist with more than a decade of experience reporting on Africa. "There is an enormous gap between what people know about Africa and the facts on the ground. Yes, there is poverty and disaster, but there are also stock markets, high rises, internet cafes, cell phones and people who are driven to build a better future for their children. In short, an Africa that is not so foreign from the United States or Europe," said Ms. Pineau.
