Investing in Africa
The African continent has been the target of five post-colonial decades of development assistance. However, during this period, levels of investment in domestic economies have remained low – often resulting in stagnant growth and human development.
Increasingly, the international community is recognizing that the time for investment in Africa is now. The only region in the world to record positive economic growth consistently over the last decade, Africa defied projections that growth would decelerate following the financial collapse in 2008. Even the most reluctant onlookers are being forced to revaluate preconceived notions about investing in African markets.
Contrary to traditional views of Africa as an economic black hole, Joule Africa believes that African countries offer ample opportunities for investment.
