RR: You are quite an African expert now…
ND: We had travelled extensively across the whole of Africa and found that it is extremely diverse. In the East Africa region you have Kenya and Nairobi where you will find that the printing is controlled by the majority of Indian origins and the biggest printers in those parts are from India. This is not the case in West Africa where the number of Indians is minuscule. The added advantage for me on these visits was that I was always close to an African rather than to an Indian.
