5 reasons for Kenya & Africa
- 85 Mio. manufacturing jobs will leave Asia within the next ten years. Africa will be ready to takeover
- Africa will be the new demographic powerhouse. All continents will grow older, and many economies will have a shrinking working population. Africa on the other hand is still young and the working age population is rapidly expanding. By 2033, half of Kenya’s population will be urban, i.e. living in (big) cities. Studies show that doubling city size is associated with a productivity increase of an average of 6 percent.
- Kenya speaks the world’s leading language -English- and the business community largely benefits from a good labor force.
- Compared to Europe, Africa’s macroeconomic policies look excellent! For example, Kenya’s debt level of around 45 percent of GDP would propel it to one of the top performers in the European Union.
