EXPANDING MARKETS

Africa is emerging. Growth prospects for the continent remain positive with the region’s GDP growth projected to rise to 5.2% in 2015/2016 and 5.3% in 2017 according to the World Bank.

Led by strong public investment in infrastructure, increased agricultural production, and an expanding services sector, Sub-Saharan Africa is poised to remain one of the fastest growing areas. Across the region, there has been substantial investment in infrastructure; including in ports, electricity capacity, and transportation.

Several countries have also seen a strong recovery in the agriculture sector in 2014 which is expected to continue through 2015.

The expansion of the services sector led by transportation, telecommunications, financial services and tourism is also spearheading overall economic growth in a number of countries.
