This book provides a detailed look at the birth, growth and expansion of African Multinational Enterprises (AMNEs). Specifically, it explores the historical, ideological, political and macroeconomics forces that shaped modern day Africa and the role they play in fostering the emergence and growth of AMNEs. It also examines some of the challenges these enterprises have faced in this venture including poor infrastructure, deficient supply chains, and opaque institutional and regulatory frameworks and the innovative ways by which they overcame them. In this way, this book provides practitioners and students with not only a detailed insight into AMNEs but also their potential competitive advantage in the international business stage.
