THE RICH history of Africa is marred by slavery, colonialism, civil wars, diseases, poverty.

The economies of Africa are experiencing tremendous growth. Six out of the 10 fastest growing economies in the world come from Africa.

Africa is the richest continents by far in terms of mineral deposits such as gold, diamond, cobalt, bauxite, magnesium, crude oil. As a matter of fact, 30 per cent of the world’s remaining minerals are in Africa.

Africa has a growing middle class that have a taste for good food, nice houses, nice clothing , good education, nice holiday. 30 per cent of the 1.27 billion population are in the middle class. For a business seeking to grow, then you should explore the African Market. It is projected that by the year 2100, 80 per cent of the world population will be living in Africa and Asia.

Another great factor is the large labour market - 60 per cent to 70 per cent of the population are under the age of 25. Providing you with young, strong, educated labour force.
