The African continent is well represented on the lists of the world’s fastest growing economies. The increasing political stability, a growing middle class and advancing educational levels on the continent entice more and more entrepreneurs to Africa. Africa holds the future – both as a manufacturing location and as an emerging market for developing sales.
