#AfricaConnected: Lee Kasumba explores business opportunities in Cote d’Ivoire

First impressions count for a lot and journalist Lee Kasumba's touch down in Cote D'Ivoire certainly didn't disappoint.

702 and Standard Bank's Africa Connected sent Kasumba across Africa to discover just how easy it is to do business on the continent and to gain insights into Africa's markets.

She told Bongani Bingwa that her airport experience alone made her confident of the country's promise.

Even as we drove into the hotel which is in town, I was expecting a lot of people in the streets, I kid you not quietness, order, I almost kept thinking, 'Where am I?' You could really tell there was this level of sophistication but in an interesting way.
