Africa Business Report was a business news programme produced by the BBC and is shown on BBC World News. This programme was launched in 2009 as a monthly half-hour programme presented by Komla Dumor. Following a hiatus in 2011, the programme was relaunched on 5 October 2013 and is now aired worldwide as a weekly 20-minute programme. The program aired its final episode on 25 May 2018[1]. The programme, which utilises correspondents located throughout the continent, is described by BBC World News as:

"A look at business across the continent. We talk to the people and businesses who are changing the economic face of Africa. BBC correspondents within each country will report on the growing trends and latest business developments and give an insight into this diverse continent."

The newly launched programme is now hosted by Lerato Mbele, whereas previous host Komla Dumor was then host of Focus on Africa.
