May Issue of the African Business Journal Now Online

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA--(Marketwired - April 30, 2013) - George Media Inc. is pleased to announce the May issue of The African Business Journal is now available online at Click on the cover of the magazine to enter the publication.

Africa's almost infinite-seeming supply of opportunities has not gone unnoticed by the likes of some of the biggest economic regions in the world, like China, Europe and India. But oddly enough, this feverish rush hasn't been felt by the United States of America, until now. In our cover story, we speak with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce about the launch of the U.S.-South African Business Council, its goals and what steps need to be taken for real bilateral/multilateral trade to occur.

We also have an exclusive interview with South Africa's Energy Minister Elizabeth Dipuo Peters where Juliet Langton asks her why the South African government has set itself such ambitious targets for increasing its renewable energy use and what it is doing to ensure it hits them.

The conversations continue in our monthly columns as well. Sean Rogers explores the similarities in perceptions between United States and South Africa when it comes to doing business with the continent. After his recent trip to Lagos, Larry Seruma questions whether the Nigeria economic miracle is about to happen? And Eki Maria examines the warning signs of impending burnout and offers some proven coping strategies in her monthly series. There is all of that and much more in this edition of TABJ.
