Feeling a bit of the football comedown? After hosting the spectacle that was the 2010 FIFA World Cup, we’re a bit sad to see that it is over but are still glowing with pride. What a tournament it was—and we’ve recapped and highlighted all the drama, victory and glory in our cover feature so you can relive the excitement.

The World Cup did a great deal for local business, not the least of which is the booming telecommunications sector. Africa has been the fastest growing mobile phone market in the world for over five years now, and local companies are reaping the benefits of that. Check for our spotlight on South African-based mobile telecommunications company MTN Group for another reason to be proud of South Africa!

We’ve also profiled Derrick Levy, one of the country’s brightest entrepreneurs, and asked him what motivates him to continue to strive for success in his boating business.

There are also the business and industry features you have grown to expect from TABJ, and we don’t disappoint. We are particularly proud to present you with a profile on the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme and its far-reaching implications for the African diamond industry. From agriculture to construction, legal, manufacturing and beyond, we bring you companies that continue to bring Africa to the world.

As always, please feel free to email us your comments and suggestions. We would love to hear from you.
