Exploring the Fraser Institute’s Economic Freedom of the World Report - Africa Accelerating 2022

The Fraser Institute’s Economic Freedom of the World Report will serve as the focus of a keynote presentation during Africa Accelerating 2022, an information-sharing forum sponsored by Ivanhoe Mines taking place in Johannesburg, from 25 to 27 October.

Ayanda Khumalo, Vice Chair of the FMF – a member of the Fraser Institute’s worldwide Economic Freedom Network in South Africa - will deliver the presentation.

In line with the information-sharing mandate of the Canada-Africa Chamber of Business, the Fraser Institute has freely shared its findings from the yearly Economic Freedom of the World Report and its Annual Survey of Mining Companies. Past presentations were delivered to Pan-African audiences at PDAC, through to country-specific events, such as one on economic reforms in Zimbabwe, an event requested by the country’s Embassy.

‘’With proven reforms we've researched, there is no reason African countries could not become some of the most economically free and prosperous nations on earth,’’ says Fred McMahon, a Fraser Institute Resident Fellow and holder of the Dr. Michael A. Walker Chair in Economic Freedom

According to the Chamber’s Sebastian Spio-Garbrah, based in Accra, ‘’the Fraser Institute’s Economic Freedom of the World Report is an invaluable resource that shows not only the importance of free trade, but the supporting institutional and policy framework for African countries to succeed as members within a thriving African free trade bloc.''   

''The Economic Freedom of the World Report is an incredible contribution from Canada to the cause of economic freedom and prosperity around the world''. 


‘’As a member of the Chamber and as its board-appointed Special Envoy to the African Continental Free Trade Area Secretariat, the Fraser’s Institute’s globally renowned work on economic freedom is in my view an incredible Canadian contribution to free trade in Africa. In turn it serves to accelerate Africa trade and investment: real economic freedom in Africa creates an environment that can accelerate trade and investment between Canada and the African continent.''

This year alone the Fraser Institute's Fred McMahon has led economic freedom audits in Kenya and Uganda.
