By Tunmise Adekunle Lagos — Panel of judges and new categories announced Diageo, the world's leading premium drinks business, has announced the panel of judges for the Diageo Africa Business Reporting Awards, which recognise and reward journalists and editors providing high quality coverage of the business environment in Africa.
Commenting on this year's panel, Mr Walsh said: Diageo established these awards because we recognise that negative perceptions of Africa and a lack of reliable information on the continent's business environment are hindering greater investment. We hope that through these awards Diageo will help to address the marginalisation of Africa in the media.
The reality on the ground is that it is possible to have profitable and sustainable businesses in Africa. Diageo has a number of long-standing and successful investments on the continent, which is one of our largest markets by volume.
As the perception of Africa improves, so too will the investment flows. We all have an interest in seeing this happen, not least because a thriving private sector is so important to Africa's economic development.
