Abstract

In this first issue of 2013 we are reminded of the challenges facing African Business in a global context. These range from the public policy actions towards environmental sustainability; business development services and/or support for micro-enterprises; the debate over food aid vis-a-vis food security; the place and role of women in the economic development of the continent; the role of SMEs in international business travel; and the growing importance of Tourism as a tool for economic development in both poor and scant reported contexts such as the Comoro Islands, and the reasonably well researched middle income countries such as Ghana.

Keywords: African Business, Food Security, Comoro Islands, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Ghana, Nigeria
