"Africa is Japan Upside Down" said Sir Paul Collier at a talk I attended a while ago. Nonetheless he saw opportunities for Japan there.
The recent TICAD conference in Nairobi has heralded a renewed interest in Africa from our clients, so we are delighted to announce the appointment of Justin Wolff as our South Africa Representative.
We are also renaming Japan Intercultural Consulting Europe as Japan Intercultural Consulting Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), to match the trend for many of our regional HQ clients who coordinate across EMEA.
