What comes to mind when you think of Africa?
Perhaps corruption, political volatility and personal safety challenges. Yet Africa holds some of the fastest growing economies (three of the top five globally in 2017), with a significant population base moving increasingly closer to the middle class.
Africa is already a major destination of food ingredients from New Zealand and despite the growth we will see in this sector, the likelihood is our future lies elsewhere – such as the ICT and agribusiness industries, as many African nations embrace connectivity, innovation and foreign investment.
