ocal content – the phrase has rippled through Africa’s energy and mining sectors, gathering strength over the past decade. From workshops to conferences, from ministerial briefings to presidential speeches, African governments are devising frameworks that will hitch their domestic industries to the growth that foreign investment brings. Nigeria, Ghana, Angola, Morocco, South Africa, Uganda, Gabon and Guinea have passed local content bills in recent years, often in the extractive industries. The Nigerian Oil and Gas Industry Content Development Act hastoughrequirementsongivinglocal companies priority in oil block licensingroundsandcompelsoilcompanies and service providers to hire Nigerians. Ghana’s local content law likewise gives local companies first preference in bidding rounds for oil blocks and requires a minimum 5% equity stake for Ghanaian firms – not including the government-owned Ghana National Petroleum Corporation – in every oil licence. The rationale is clear. After decades of natural resource flows out of African countries, economies remain locked into the lowest rung of economic development, with local companies unable to add value to raw commodities. The continent’s industrial fabric remains threadbare, and the growing number of young graduates will cause chaos if there are not enough jobs to fill. African Union Commission chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma reminded African finance ministers in March that African countries have to “design a comprehensive industrial development framework […] to speed up and deepen value-addition of local production, linkages between

the commodity sector and other economic sectors”. Guinea’s mines minister Kerfalla Yansané says: “We have been learning from our mistakes. Our mining companies were not integrated into the mainstream of our economy. Now we want them to be part of growth corridors. There should be a link between mining activities and the whole environment, meaning agriculture, services, transport, education and so on.” JOBS FIRST

For Jean-Louis Ekra, president of Afreximbank, this economic nationalist moment “is not just happening in Africa, because of the difficulty in job creation you see around the world. In Europe, whenever a company says it will move a factory abroad you have instant uproar from the government.” A panel of experts convened by Britain-based law firm Pinsent Masons earlier this year was unanimous: “Local content legislation [in Africa] is here to stay, and those companies that fail to recognise this evolving investment reality will quickly fall behind.” In places where governments have been working on this for some time, like Nigeria, there are real changes afoot. “One of the best testimonies to this is local participation in the annual CWC Nigeria Oil & Gas Conference,” says Fisoye Delano, senior vice-president of CAMAC International and previously managing director of the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company. “The number of Nigerian oilfield services providers has changed significantly, just as significantly as the number of indigenous exploration and production companies. Eighty-five percent of exhibitors in NOG 2014 were local service providers.” ●●●

Coal prices are down, but companies like Vale take a longer term, cyclical view

the commodity cycle is supposed to ensure that they lock in huge profits when global demand rises. Rather than a commoditycentric approach, the view they take is to look at whether their individual assets across the world – their mines and processing plants – continue to meet required performance thresholds. In this analysis, what matters more are things like tax and royalty rates, security and infrastructure. In taking the temperature of the continent’s mining sector, executives pay closest heed to its politics. INVESTOR-FRIENDLY

By Honoré Banda in Lusaka

rognosticators could be forgiven for taking a gloomy view of the mining sector. The global economy’s tentative recovery appears to be stalling. Chinese growth is slowing, Europe and Japan look headed for recession and the US faces an uncertain future without the stimulating effects of the Federal Reserve’s ultra-loose monetary policy. Taken in sum, it makes for grim reading. Mining generates close to one third of the African continent’s gross domestic product, so if demand for natural resources falls, the negative effects will be wideTHE AFRICA REPORT

spread. Tax receipts will fall, government spending will be curbed and jobs will suffer. It could also spell the postponement of undeveloped mining projects that will no longer be profitable with lower mineral prices. That is at least how the conventional thinking goes. The reality is more nuanced. For one thing, the value of some minerals has improvedduringthepastfewmonths. While iron ore prices plummeted, dropping more than 40% since the start of the year and jeopardising a host of high-cost West African mines, prices for aluminium, zinc and nickel rose.

One need only look at the contrast in investor sentiment in Côte d’Ivoire and South Africa. The West African country’s fledgling mining sector is dwarfed by South Africa, still one of the world’s largest precious metals producers. More exploration spending is heading in the direction of Côte d’Ivoire for its more favourable fiscal terms and a government that is seen, at least by company bosses, to encourage foreign investment in mining rather than raising the rents on it. Other countries with governments interested in attracting new investment, like Ethiopia, are host to more exploration efforts. The country has substantial reserves of potash, platinum and gold, and the government plans to triple revenue from the sector from its current level of $600m over the next decade. On the other hand, the country attracting the lion’s share of new spending on the continent is the DRC,longreputedforitscorruption and inefficiency. Its unparalleled store of riches, estimated to be at least twice as large as South Africa’s reserves, come with major political risks.
