January Issue of the African Business Journal Now Online

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA - George Media Inc. is pleased to announce the January 2014 issue of The African Business Journal is now available. Click here to enter directly into the magazine.

In this issue we celebrate the New Year, which is poised to be a defining one for Africa. The IMF has predicted the growth rate for sub-Saharan Africa will rise to 6 per cent from 5 per cent in 2013. Improved global conditions will also increase the number of middle class Africans to more than 200 million.

Our leader of the year is Nicky Newton-King, the CEO of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. We spoke to Newton-King about her many accomplishments, the possibility of a pan-African exchange and what the JSE's top rankings by the WEF mean for South Africa's economy. In addition we get some insight from the JSE's CIO on the bourse IT management system.

January's issue includes an analysis from Sean Rogers of Know Africa and he examines what 'Africa Rising' means for business and its role in changing antiquated perceptions of the continent. As well we introduce to 'Africa's greenest and hotel and profile Tamara Dawit a young filmmaker in our monthly Q&A. Rounding off, Christopher McKee writes about what Nigeria's unstable political situation means for the country's economic growth.

Additionally, we are pleased to announce our new TABJ iPad/iPhone app is now available for downloading from the App Store. You can do so by clicking on the icon found on our TABJ homepage.
