#TAFCanada2019


African economies have sustained unprecedented rates of growth, driven mainly by strong domestic demand, improved macroeconomic management, a growing middle class, and increased political stability. The continent has made remarkable progress in recent decades on issues from governance to health and is shaping itself into the “African opportunity” message. Africa is growing, creating both opportunities and risks. Change is intrinsic to the development process; if managed effectively, they can help unlock Africa’s development potential. And as the continent continues to evolve, it is becoming more evident that Africa is an opportunity, one that is being shaped by and for the African people. The Africa Forum Canada 2019 will help attendees recognize and undderstand Africa as an opportunity, rather than a threat, so governments, citizens, and organizations on the continent and around the world will be better positioned to face challenges and further boost positive trends.



African Opportunity

The African consumer landscape is evolving at a rapid pace, driven by growing populations, advances in technology and rising income. Plus, Africa’s urbanization is more rapid than anywhere in the world, creating huge opportunities for housing, transportation, water and power. The time to strengthen North America-African trade and investment connections has never been greater. Six of the world’s 10 fastest growing economies are in Africa, which boasts a large and growing middle class that appeals to North American investment. Canada is a global economic power and a proven leader in technology – a member of The Commonwealth. Conversely, Africa is projected to be the world’s fastest growing region until 2040 amidst an era of increased prosperity, and is drawing unprecedented investment and attention. Unlike China and the United States, however, Canada has been slower to recognize the tremendous business potential in Africa.
