SECTOR FOREWORD Logistics and Shipping Africa is the fastest emerging economy in the world. Everyone, and anyone, wants a piece of the rich African cake and they dare not be left behind. On a continent where nearly 90% of international trade happens by sea, several African ports are in the race to be their respective regional shipping hubs. Lack of infrastructure and long ship waiting times continue to hamper productivity for the African shipping and logistics sector, but a wave of new investments looks set to drive growth over the medium term, according to a new report from research consultancy SeaIntel. Based on media reports, China, Africa’s biggest trading partner will be at the forefront of those investments as well as drive the shipping and logistics sector. PANAVEST would like to thank all the women in the shipping and logistics sector. They have shown that they are determined to see the motherland prosper through their endeavours in the shipping and logistics sector.
