New market opportunities in Africa
Multinationals and companies operating in saturated markets, which are seeking new revenue sources, can now consider expansion into Africa as a real option.
Africa’s large and youthful population, upward urban growth trajectory, socially-connected mobile users, untapped physical resources and the deepening of the financial sector have been identified as key trends propelling the African economy into the future.
