On June 30, 2015, Africa announced it signed a pact called the Tripartite Free Trade Area (TFTA). The free trade agreement marks a momentous milestone for the continent. This will create a common market for 26 nations, spanning half the continent from Cairo to Cape Town. With this, Africa’s leaders have clearly stated they are “open for business.”
Plagued with falling commodity prices, power gaps, political instability and corruption, the 26 African countries will function as a single continent with population strength of over 625 million people in the common trade bloc. Thus begins Africa’s growth story as the world waits with baited breath for the bread basket to become an industrial hub.
This presentation will weigh in Africa’s future prospects, examining exogenous factors or Mega Trends that Frost & Sullivan believes will drive the region’s growth story over the next 10 years. This presentation provides visionary insights into the impact of digital trends, such as virtual currency on Africa’s banking industry and the growing importance of the mobile economy that is touted to become the second-largest mobile Internet market by 2020 globally.
