The thing which I could have done better is of thinking if I could have given more time I will be able to get more information for different database. Also I couldn't get enough books to get more material due to books are very expensive and our library there is no enough books for this topic I choose. I am sure I will be able to talk about Africa Political instability deeply, the time which I was given was not enough for me because that time I was doing also my Business Plan which need time to concentrate and also preparation of my Small Business Development Exam.
