PwC investeert miljoenen in Afrika

PwC investeert honderden miljoenen dollars in Afrika om daar haar activiteiten op te voeren. In Afrika werken momenteel zo’n 8.500 mensen bij PwC. Het accountants- en advieskantoor streeft ernaar om het personeelbestand over het hele continent in de komende vijf jaar te verdubbelen, voornamelijk via de inhuur van lokale krachten.


Voorzitter Ian Powell van PwC UK zegt in een persbericht.‘This is an exciting development which enhances our ability to serve clients across the fastest growing region in the world. Africa has an abundance of natural resources and seven of the world’s fastest growing economies meaning the opportunities for UK business are significant.’

Suresh Kana, PwC Africa Network Territory Senior Partner: ‘This is great news for our network. Over the years we have built PwC into the leading network in Africa. We now see huge opportunities to build our capabilities further as we will be able to invest even faster in key industry sectors such as Capital Projects & Infrastructure, Oil & Gas, Government & Public Sector and Financial Services. We have great teams in Africa and this investment will help us build more local capacity, and create teaming and secondment opportunities.’
