Thanks! I'm very interested in Africa and I think it will be one of the best places to invest over the next couple of decades.

But it's hard to invest there, with the exception of South African companies and gold miners. In particular, I wish there were more companies from Egypt, Algeria, and Nigeria listed on US exchanges.

I have stock in SSL and it has been doing great so far, but I'm always keeping my eye open for smaller, fast-growing African companies.

You can also find a lot of ADRs here, including African ones. It's a handy site because you can search by region, country, industry, and stock exchange. Some of the ones that show up will be .pk or .ob stocks.
