Opportunities for growth in Africa

Many African countries increasingly offer attractive prospects for companies and investors: the growing availability of labour and skilled workers, rising purchasing power and the improved integration into global value chains are opening up great entrepreneurial potential. With annual growth rates of five per cent or more in recent years, countries such as Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Rwanda and Senegal are among the world’s fastest growing economies.

Invest for Jobs supports companies in their investment activities in Africa by offering comprehensive advice, contacts and financial support to overcome investment barriers. The aim is to create good jobs in the African partner countries.
