Africa is far from being the ‘dark continent’ it was once called, and its opportunities continue to rise.

Why Africa

Africa is the continent of future. It´s business realities have left old perceptions far behind. Growth is more sustained and diversified than ever before. Income per capita will grow by 50% over the next twelve years, turning it into one of the world's most dynamic regions. Reforms and entrepreneurial drive have transformed Africa into a continent of opportunities that can no longer be ignored.
The question is no longer whether African countries will be the next development success stories, but when. African economies have emerged from the global financial storm much faster than their Western peers. Average growth has been nearly 6% in 2012, up from 3.1% in 2009. Between 2012 and 2016, Sub-Saharan Africa growth will be 4.9% compared with 2.9% globally. Half of the world's ten fastest-growing countries are in Sub-Saharan Africa. Economic output in the region is set to double and per capita income to grow by 50% within the next twelve years.  Due to the considerable progress that many countries have made in terms of political stability, macroeconomic health and business conditions, sustainable growth in Africa is the new reality. 
Africa's demographic trends are further fueling this growth. Africa's middle class of 313 million people, or 34% of its entire population, is larger than the entire population of the United States and on a par with the middle class of India. Africa is gaining 5 million of these new consumers each year. The number of mobile phone users has grown 40% every year during the last decade, from 12 million in 2000 to 343 million in 2010.
Cities are ballooning at the rate of 3.5% a year and the continent will soon have the world's largest labor force. In many countries across Africa, the median age is under 20, compared with just fewer than 30 in Asia and just fewer than 40 in Europe. Africa's working age population will continue to expand after 2050.
