Les Afriques is a weekly economical and financial African newspaper. In 2007, it claims to be the first Pan-African[1] financial newspaper. It is published weekly and available in almost all French-speaking countries.


The newspaper started its publication in July 2007.[2] Its launch was announced on the French-language TV Journal de Léman bleu and on several specialised African websites.[3]
