About the programme

Africa is a dynamic continent, home to some of the world’s fastest growing economies.

African businesses are investing at home and abroad, and global businesses are coming to Africa.

It's a place of entrepreneurs and big business, innovation and creativity.

This is the story of today's Africa, brought to you each week on Africa Business Report only on BBC World News.

Presenter Lerato Mbele and our team of correspondents from around the continent bring you the latest business news, technology tales, and consumer trends from across the region.

On air on BBC World News every Friday 1940, Saturday 1040 & 1840 and Sunday 0040.
