"CEOs in Africa feel more positive about their ability to generate revenue growth and about prospects for the economy now that they are emerging from the global financial recession," Suresh Kana, Senior Partner for PwC Africa said in a statement obtained by PANA.

PwC Southern Africa CEO Suresh Kana says South African CEOs remain extremely positive about future prospects, but are well aware of the challenges the country faces; "Eighty two percent of South African CEOs expect their business to grow in the next 12 months.
Kana says South African boards are open to deal with the ever-increasing pressure on the executive 'pay gap'.
Customers at the centre of innovation Although there is a greater emphasis on innovation as a driving force for growth globally than locally, South African CEOs are becoming more customer-centric.
"As markets mature, there is a growing need for new products and services to drive growth. This leads to an increasingly customer-centric wave of innovation, which not only promises customers a better product experience, but also an opportunity for companies to differentiate themselves from competitors and increase revenues," says Kana.
Kana says while South African CEOs are cognizant of the responsibilities they and their companies have in society, they also have high expectations about the role government should be playing.

"It is interesting to note however that CEOs are slightly more anxious about their prospects for growth over the short-term," adds Kana. Although 84% remain confident overall, only 40% say they are "very confident'. "CEOs acknowledge that a lot more needs to be done in terms of transforming the continent's potential for exponential growth into tangible business opportunities," he says.
In turn, these advances are expected to trigger a strong acceleration in economic growth towards the end of the coming decade," comments Kana.
Similarly, 85% said the same about data analytics," says Kana. Following a decade of rapid urbanisation, Africa is undergoing a digital revolution.
Kana says that CEOs in South Africa share many of the concerns with their peers on the continent, with the survey showing that they have common worries about high or volatile energy costs (South Africa: 82%, Africa 76%); the availability of key skills (South Africa: 87%; Africa 83%); and new market entrants (South Africa: 63%; Africa: 58%).
Kana adds: "An effective risk management approach requires organisations to think differently and the main challenge is good communication.
"To be successful, leadership development programmes must work to grow capacity and agility among top talent," adds Kana.
"Notwithstanding the difficulties and challenges ahead, many African organisations have learnt to brace themselves and adapt quickly, overcoming many of these challenges, including mitigating the risks " and turning Africa into the next frontier of growth," concludes Kana.
