Endsight’s Country Performance Index (CPI) measures and ranks all 54 African countries on their competitiveness to attract business and investment. We combine 33 international indicators into three categories – Business Conditions, Financial Factors, and Governance – that provide a comprehensive and in-depth understanding of the business terrain of each country.
For international business and investors: CPI takes the guesswork out of finding the most attractive locations to expand your interests. While each project has its unique requirements, CPI provides clear, data-driven direction to guide development and mitigate risks.
Link for private business and investors: CPI is a critical tool for evaluating the business environment in each African country and building a detailed risk-mitigation strategy for moving forward. Understanding a country’s strengths and weaknesses helps in negotiations for incentives for investment. Using the CPI methodology, we work directly with the client to review the options for market entry or growth:
For African Governments: Endsight uses CPI to build a roadmap of very specific actions that elevate a country’s standing and competitiveness for new investment. Endsight is already active with several African presidencies whose countries have been cited as the fastest reformers in the world. Using the CPI methodology, we work directly with the leadership to get results:
The structure and weighting of the CPI methodology can be adjusted and customized to accommodate any industrial sector so countries can properly assess their comparative advantages and businesses can evaluate markets specifically for their investments.
We are currently working to expand CPI beyond Africa to include global rankings of all Low Income and Middle Income countries.
