Australia–Africa Practice Group

Connecting you to our leading African network

With more than 200 listed Australian companies now operating in Africa, a golden age of Australia – Africa relations has begun.

African countries are perceived to be tough to do business in. Understanding how to navigate different operating environments is essential to maximising the huge investment opportunities available.

PwC's Australia - Africa practice connects Australian companies with our leading African network; supported by an Australian team which understands your business and connects you to partners on the ground where you need it most.

PwC has the largest network of all the professional services firms on the African continent. We have member firms in 32 African countries and more than 8,500 professional staff. We are market leaders in many of the countries where Australian companies operate.

Latest insight

I am extremely impressed with the way PwC in Australia have embraced Africa and the positive relationship that they have developed with AAMEG. As AAMEG engages with and supports the explorers, juniors and mid-level companies, it is vital that their voices are heard and the issues understood. PwC understands the significance of this end of the market and the extra input and resources that are required. PwC are making major contributions to the industry through their research, preparation and presentation to the Australian Government, of a significant paper addressing key Australian tax reform issues that are impacting negatively on the industry. It is a pleasure to work with such an enthusiastic, progressive and professional organisation, who want to understand the issues and make a positive contribution.
