Companies all over the world have been rapidly recognizing the great value of doing business in Africa. Some of the fastest growing economies, the world’s youngest work force, an emerging middle class, and expanding growth from academics to investment make Africa the perfect place for companies looking to expand. So why is it that there aren’t more U.S. companies jumping in to do business in Africa? Simple. They believe there are too many barriers. Africa Business Portal understands this and is working hard to reduce the obstacles and break down the barriers to doing business in Africa. By connecting companies with experienced local advisors, building up the ABP Network (a collection of companies you can trust), and encouraging compliance, Africa Business Portal hopes that we can work together to build up and strengthen business in Africa.
