Ernst & Young (E&Y) has opened an Africa Business Centre (ABC) to enhance its geographical reach and links between areas of expertise in Africa.
The ABC is a network of professionals across Africa and in investor markets such as China, India, the Middle East, the UK, Europe and the US.
A key part of the network will be to co-ordinate the firm’s resources across Africa through a single point of contact.
E&Y said this business model has proven to be extremely successful in the past and has become a key strategic driver with clients being assured of quality deliveries no matter where the office is based.
E&Y currently has a presence in 26 African countries.
The African integration follows on from Ernst & Young’s previous integration of 87 countries into one area from across Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA) in 2008.
