Our experience

Since 1989, CbI has worked with a wide variety of public and private sector clients to provide reliable and trustworthy information and intelligence on Africa and the Middle East.

We have developed first-hand relationships with on the ground associates in more than 40 African and Middle Eastern countries in order to provide reports and analyses that are balanced and accurately reflect local conditions.

Regular clients using our services include some of the world’s largest companies and financial institutions, national governments, and multilateral organisations such as the Africa-EU Partnership and the African Development Bank-based Infrastructure Consortium for Africa.

CbI plays an active and participatory role in the African energy sector through African Energy  – providing consultancy, data, news and events to investors, developers, operators, government officials and other stakeholders.

In the Middle East, CbI has become one of the leading providers of analysis on the ruling families and elites of the Gulf region through Gulf States Newsletter (GSN).
