11 Sep The Perfect Africa “Launching Pad” for USA Companies
So how much is really happening in East Africa?
Let us take it from a global player that does business in every single part of the world.
“Africa possesses some of the most enticing business opportunities in the world. A dynamic and diverse market, Africa offers vast possibilities within everything from agriculture; manufacturing; energy and natural resources, to tourism and infrastructure developments – and many other sectors. Growing by an average annual rate of more than 5% over the past decade, Africa is one of the world’s fastest growing continents – and it doesn’t look like slowing down. There are a number of reasons for that: increased political stability in many regions, economic reforms and the discovery of large oil and gas reserves just to name a few.”
“From the vast plains of the Serengeti to the islets of Zanzibar, East Africa has captivated humanity for many years. Having struggled with poverty for decades, the region has largely turned itself around; it now attracts businesses from all over the world within FMGC, oil and drilling, infrastructure and electricity development, and countless other thriving sectors that are a part of East Africa’s ascend to becoming one of the most attractive markets in the world to invest in.”
