The continent of Africa is made up of 54 countries, and an estimated 2,000 languages. Home to a population of 1.2 billion, while it’s combined economy is only a third of the United States, it offers some of the greatest growth potential in the world today.

Africa already boasts the highest proportion of entrepreneurs on a continent in the world, and it’s soon set to become the world’s largest free trade area, thanks to the Continental Free Trade Area (CFTA).

The continent’s enormous reserves of natural resources offer great but generally untapped mining opportunities, while it’s huge population present a largely unrealised market for consumer goods. The population’s limited average income per capita is actually a draw for investors, as it means there’s the potential to make huge returns on investments in the region.


Nations in Africa are beginning to realise their potential, and now’s the time to consider making the jump, and expanding into Africa, whether you’re looking to import goods, outsource services, or even invest in the continent’s numerous, vast infrastructure projects. The only challenge is knowing which is the most cost effective and far reaching language to do it in.
