Here at New Business Africa, we like to think of ourselves as being reflective, approachable and open – an independent media organization that likes to do things in a new way. That’s why in this edition we go back in time and imagine ourselves in Africa of the 1980s. Then, hardly was there a serious democratic state as most countries were under the military dictatorships. The continent was ravaged with conflicts and famine. The general horror picture was of doom and gloom. To counter the sometimes exaggerated Western media coverage of the continent at the time, Africans shouted themselves hoarse to defend the sometimes indefensible human tragedy. In that era, an editorial of this nature would have been unimaginable and a business magazine of this kind, inconceivable.

But in year 2012, Africa’s democratic credentials have improved tremendously and the impressive economic efforts and achievements across the continent can not be overlooked. This is a relief to Africans and good news for global investors.

According to forecasts by Standard Chartered, over the next five years it will be the African economies that begin to edge ahead and even outpace the Asian pacesetters. Indeed, the IMF expects African countries to occupy 7 of the top 10 positions of the fastest growth rates over the next five years.

For all practical purposes therefore, what does the use of the phrase ‘Africa’s decade’ mean? This is a phrase that has often become a buzz word that means everything and signifies nothing. In our special report, New Business Africa takes an in-depth look at the continent’s balance sheet of success. The report shows that Sub-Sahara Africa will be one of the fastest growing regions in the world this year, thanks to a surge in demand both from home (fuelled by urbanization and consumerism) and from abroad predominantly from China and India.

While NBA presents the faces of African athletes to look out for at London Olympic Games, we also profile notable personalities who are leading the Africa’s renaissance, prominent among them is the finance guru Adebayo Ogunlesi that bought the London Gatwick airport.

Elsewhere, we spotlight Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation with immense natural resources and manpower. Few will disagree that there is definitely money to be made in the Nigerian domestic market with about 160 million people.

In the same breath, in our special report, we present Ogun State in Nigeria, whose Governor, Ibikunle Amosun is set to bring back its past glory. Yet Amosun-led administration strives to make his state a haven for global investors. So far, it’s been a success story.

We equally report on a new African city that is emerging from the bed of the Atlantic ocean in Lagos, called Eko Atlantic – It will most likely be a new gateway to Africa in the 21st century. Simultaneously, in our exclusive advertorial, Cadwell, a real estate developer in Lagos is redefining the meaning of luxury living in Nigeria.

Also in this edition, the world richest black person, Aliko Dangote explains why Nigeria is the place to be for highest returns on investment. While in our Business Tip, the British billionaire, Sir Richard Branson- the lion heart- advises, that the best time to start up business is in the recession time. Our EXPERT gives reasons why glossies are still relevant for your brand awareness.

With the necessary economic fundamentals in place, Africa is well positioned to become the investment hub of the world, and an even more significant player in the global economy. In our Analysis feature we note that, America’s economy is starting to show real signs of recovering from global financial crisis, and the contributions of emerging economies are not negligible, which may give President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign an edge. But what does Africa stand to gain, if Democrats return to power?

I do hope that with this edition, NBA has captured your attention and met your expectations.
