ndia and Africa has poised to grow together. Indian companies investing in Africa now will gain access to a larger regional market in Africa. Bilateral trade between India and Africa in 2000 was around $3 billion. Later the trade shot up from $25 billion in 2006-07 to $70 billion in 2012-13. However, the Indian government aspires to touch $200 billion mark before 2020.

Like any other emerging region of the world, Africa offers diverse opportunities alongside a few bottlenecks, for trade and investments. Here is the slide of 10 strategies Indian companies will need to adopt 10 common imperatives identified by studying successful and unsuccessful MNC businesses in Africa.

Understand local nuances and adapt business models accordingly. Africa is one continent with 55 different countries, each with its own culture, customs and behaviours. GO GRANULAR

Customise approach based on continuous learning. There are no fixed answers to succeed in Africa; hence, companies should be ready for initial disappointments and tune their business model accordingly. EXPECT TO ITERATE

Understand and control the route to market for success in such a fragmented geography. This is a challenge which Indian companies have mastered on the home turf, and must now face in a geographically larger context. CHOOSE DISTRIBUTION CHANNELS CAREFULLY

This is necessary to get local insights, benefit from regulatory know-how and develop relationships. The ultimate aim must be to become the insider. Source:McKinsey INVOLVE LOCALS & INSIDERS AS PARTNERS
