Wondering where is the real #wealth in Africa?
With some of the world's fastest-growing economies, African countries are becoming more important players on the international stage. The economy is expected to increase along with the population, which is youthful and expanding quickly. The continent of Africa is ripe for massive industrialisation as the number of people with access to the internet and mobile devices continues to soar. In addition, the United States Government has taken historic action in favour of investors. Furthermore, the potential of investing throughout Africa's various and varied nations is quite different than it was a couple of decades ago due to improvements made to the business climate across the continent.
Despite Africa's many advantages, many companies are still wary of investing due to actual and imagined security threats. It may be challenging for investors to locate opportunities and conclude agreements due to institutional and infrastructural hurdles, risk and reward asymmetries, and high transaction costs.
Oil Development and Exploration in Senegal
Senegal is a shining example of success in West Africa thanks to its favourable geological potential—as seen by recent deepwater discoveries—as well as its fiscal and regulatory climate and general political stability. It will also benefit the infrastructure and oilfield services industries.
Electrical Generation in Ivory Coast from Natural Gas
Domestic gas supplies, a robust portfolio of practical and cheaper combined cycle gas turbine initiatives, and a business-friendly operating environment will promote gas-fired power development and private investment over the next 10 years.
The Development Of Côte d'Ivoire's Infrastructure
One of our top-performing infrastructure markets for the next five years, Côte d'Ivoire, is poised for development and investment because of its favourable public-private partnership (PPP) investment profile and operational environment. The construction industry will benefit from signing many PPPs during the last several months, and the market's image as a secure investment destination will improve.
Mobile Financial Services (MFS) across all of SSA [except Ethiopia and Angola]
The strong growth of operator-led MFS is attributed to fewer obstacles to entry for consumers: mobile networks serve a considerably more significant percentage of the population than brick-and-mortar facilities, while the enormous volume implies operators can charge much lower rates but also set lower minimum transaction amounts, in line with the demands of most African customers. As users get used to using MFS, and as MFS platforms evolve to include additional services beyond simple peer-to-peer money transfers, mobile carriers have observed an increase in the popularity of MFS in 2015.
The extraction of oil in Angola
Despite a dramatic decline in global oil prices, Angola's oil production is expected to expand strongly over the next five years. Most of the new output is located in deepwater and technically demanding regions, so that development will be very services-intensive. Modern factory and midstream facilities will be required to support the output increase.
