My comment about outsourcing on Timbuktu Chronicles

I commented about Outsourcing on Timbuktu Chronicles

Nice post Emeka. Africa can seize this opportunity by adopting international standards for communications infrastructure. We also need expatriates to come back to Africa and invest in science and technology education, then we can start to build African versions of Wipro, Infosys, and Tata’s.

There are also some opportunities for outsourcing within Africa itself. Many multinationals have businesses in Africa that are not part of its core. If an African entrepreneur wants to get into BPO, the best bet is to look inside the continent for outsourcing opportunities then scale outside to larger markets such as Europe or North America.

Furthermore, because of the turnover rate in the BPO industry in India, look for India to start outsourcing work to Africa in the next 5-10 years.
