Jan 27, 2008 Africa: Footloose Industry and Labor Rights
"The largest investments in manufacturing [resulting from the U.S.
Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA)] are in the garment
industry. However, throughout the world, garment industries have
been the most footloose, moving from country to country following
government incentives and low wages" - Global Policy Network
Apr 22, 2005 Africa: Internet Advances
As of April 2005, the African continent now has its own regional
internet registry, AfriNic, with responsibility for assignment of
internet addresses within the continent. This long-awaited
development has the potential to save some $500 million in fees
paid outside the continent each year to registries in Europe and
North America. The agency, which received formal approval at an
international meeting in Argentina on April 8, is headquartered in
Mauritius, with an operations center in South Africa and back-up
facilities in Egypt.
