Sub-Saharan Africa, More Than Just a Source of Raw Materials


Sub-Saharan Africa remains the least developed of any region in the world. However since 2000 surging global raw material demand, growing consumer markets in the region and a large demographic dividend is driving growth. In 2013 Sub-Saharan Africa is expected to be the second fastest growing region in the world, in real GDP terms. The rise in growth, infrastructure and productivity is therefore resulting in a proliferation of opportunities for those with an appetite for risk.
