The recent political campaigns (2008 to 2009) around Africa (e.g. Zambia, Kenya, South Africa) had for the first time interesting debate on the empowerment of indigenous Africans, particularly, in the mining and industrial sector. SMEs remain the largest source of domestic employment in most developed countries, and of non-agricultural employment virtually in all developing economies.
