THE CONFERENCE

Africa is the continent which owns, more than any other, the potential to realize sustainable economic growth. This potential is still mostly undeveloped , and the use of new technologies, advanced

productive processes and international trade partnerships will allow a steady development along new business routes.

o The African continent is blooming. The continent offers more investment opportunities than any other continent.

o The drastic increase in the number of middle class families and acres of unused fertile land has been attracting investors from around the world.

o Currently, six of the world’s 10 fastest growing economies are in Africa.

o The ease of doing business in Africa is improving to the extent that a good number of countries (including South Africa, Ghana, Mauritius and Tunisia) now outperform China, India, Brazil and Russia.

foreign companies operating in Africa. Companies that approach banks
for investment in Africa are met with doubts and skepticism. All the
existing possibilities, however, need to be explored. Whether you are
