Mobile IT Solutions, Germany / Cameroon / Pan Africa
Unique direct investment opportunity in the fast growing market for mobile IT solutions in one of the most dynamic countries in the world
Why invest in Africa?
Africa is one of the most dynamic growth regions in the world, second only to developing Asia. According to CEPR and Citibank Research and Analysis , Africa’s share of world GDP (measured in 2009 purchase power parity USD) will grow from 4% in 2010 to 7% in 2030 and 12% in 2050, while Western Europe will shrink from 19% in 2010 to 7% in 2050 and North America from 22% to 11%. Africa is the next big thing!
In general, the underdevelopment of many African countries in many aspects of business life represents major business and investment opportunities. Utilities and microfinance in particular belong to the classic growth sectors that will benefit from population growth, urbanization, growing purchasing power, and globalization.
