RiskMap 2017. Afrique de l’Ouest : La « nouvelle normalité » ne se fera pas sans heurt

  • Les nations africaines en lice pour émerger en tant que passerelles commerciales pour les investissements étrangers directs offrent des opportunités, mais aussi des menaces inconnues pour les entreprises
  • Facteurs macroéconomiques : le faible prix du pétrole et le sentiment économique mondial seront les principaux moteurs de l’instabilité au sein du continent.
  • L’incertitude politique intérieure d’un certain nombre de nations d’importance constituera un risque beaucoup plus grand pour les entreprises présentes sur le continent que l’effet de la géopolitique internationale
  • Les entreprises africaines resteront vulnérables et risqueront de ne pas accorder aux risques de cybersécurité la même valeur que ceux associés à la sécurité physique ou aux menaces politiques
  • Les entreprises réagiront comme des arches (orientation défensive sur les principaux marchés), des requins (ciblage des nouvelles opportunités) ou des baleines (en devenant trop importantes pour faire faillite)
  • La meilleure gouvernance a amélioré le climat des affaires, mais rien ne se déroule sans accroc

L’instabilité macroéconomique alimentée par le faible prix du pétrole et le sentiment économique mondial continuera d’être le principal moteur des risques commerciaux dans toute l’Afrique de l’Ouest en 2017. L’amélioration de la gouvernance et l’intégration de certaines normes et pratiques démocratiques limiteront le potentiel de détérioration, mais des défis persisteront. Les cyberattaques progressent. Les entreprises deviendront de plus en plus vulnérables jusqu’à ce que l’impact des risques cybernétiques sur leurs activités et leur réputation soit envisagé, comme le sont les effets des risques politiques et de sécurité. Voici quelques-uns des principaux thèmes du rapport annuel prévisionnel sur les risques politiques et commerciaux « RiskMap 2017 », publié par Control Risks (www.ControlRisks.com), cabinet de conseil spécialisé dans le domaine des risques. read more
