According to many analysts, the African continent is seen as the economic opportunity of the 21st century by investors and companies. There are a series of elements that explain this space of opportunity:
- The strong demand for raw materials that abound in Africa and are highly required by emerging countries such as China or India. It is about mineral, energy and agrarian resources.
- The huge population and, above all, the high birth rate and young population, guarantee sustained growth in the long term.
- The rise of the middle class allows the development of the internal market, provides greater dynamism and makes it attractive for foreign capital.
- Strong attraction of foreign investment, currently focused on mining resources, crude, installation of companies and infrastructure construction, which is the continent’s great deficit.
The greater or lesser degree of opportunity will depend on the policies implemented by the different African governments regarding health, education, infrastructure development, etc.
Africa is a vast continent that brings together more than 50 countries, each with different governments, policies and specificities. Therefore, we must know that if we intend to export to Africa the requirements can change completely depending on the country of destination.
