Africa is rich in opportunities. It is home to seven out of ten of the world’s fastest growing economies. And the continent’s economy is accelerating faster than any other, coupling abundant natural resources and increasing regional trade with strong private investment to post stronger FDI returns than anywhere else in the world.
With 70% of its population under 35, Africa will enjoy an extraordinary demographic dividend as their energy and talents drive economic growth and development. By 2050, Africa will provide 1 in 4 of the world’s workers; twice as many as China.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is predicting that no continent will grow more strongly over the coming years. With Governments across Africa working to improve the business climate, there has never been a better time to invest. By investing in the right way, companies will not only grow their own balance sheets but create jobs, support local businesses and strengthen local communities across the continent.
