LONDON, ENGLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 -- As world leaders prepare for the World Economic Forum's AGM in Davos at the end of the month, World Finance is reassessing the changing narratives of international commerce.
In the first issue of the year, World Finance speaks to GTBank's JK Segun Agbaje, who considers the African banking landscape to be unique in its position within global markets.
In an interview in the January February issue of the magazine, he says: "European and US banks have probably been a little more vulnerable than purely African banks. I would like to believe that the same is happening in India, where we can see a rise of what I call 'Indian local corporates'. The way global financial crises affect these local corporates is different, and to a different extent."
As Africa's prospects flourish, financial services can use Basel III and the lessons learnt from the credit crisis to engage and invest in long-term fiscal and monetary stability.
Using reader feedback, World Finance's judging panel celebrates some of the most promising projects and enterprises uniting governments and private organisations, in the 2013 PPP awards. Also in this issue, the magazine marks the sixth year of its Legal Awards, celebrating some of the most promising and prolific performers in legal services.
In a special report, Jinan Harb explores the creaking ground on which PC markets currently sit on. Rita Lobo looks into China's export issues and discovers the team of lawyers hell-bent on holding the food industry to account. Elsewhere in this issue, the magazine announces the World Finance 100, 2012.
