IGD President Dr. Mima S. Nedelcovych wrote a blog piece for PYXERA Global’s Global Engagement: Online platform, where he challenged U.S. investors to see Africa as an attractive investment destination.
The world’s fastest-growing region for foreign direct investment. A growing middle class with spending power totaling USD$4 trillion annually. A market of one billion people. An annual GDP growth rate of more than five percent. Some of the world’s highest returns on investment.
Does this sound like an investor’s dream? It is! The African continent is top rated as an attractive investment destination. Unfortunately, many investors in the United States are not paying attention.
