Africa Future of business

africa business story future boom

Australia and Africa are vast continents of climatic extremes, from deserts to tropical rainforests. Africa has a wealth of natural resources. Africa  has 60 per cent of the world’s uncultivated, arable land and it has 12 per cent of the world’s petroleum and 30 per cent of the planet’s known mineral reserves. Africa is either first or second by share for known reserves of platinum, diamonds, cobalt, gold and bauxite.

Investment into Africa is now booming.

The lack of basic infrastructure is the biggest impediment to economic development in Africa. The lack of suitable buildings, transport links and power and water supplies in most parts of the continent makes it virtually impossible for the emergence of modern economies.
