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. In addition, countries such as Côte d'Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana and Senegal had growth rates of more than five percent in recent years, placing them among the 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 and apprenticeships in the African partner countries and preserve them during the corona pandemic.
