dc.description.abstractRapid growth has also been associated with declining inequalities in several countries, a rising middle class, a growing youthful labour force and improvements in key social indicators. The emerging middle class in Africa, which has grown to some 350 million people, representing 34 per cent of the population, is projected to reach 1.1 billion (42 per cent of the population) by 2040. The continent’s current annual urbanization rate of 3.1 per cent the most rapid globally is creating an accessible consumer market. Declining inequality, a rising middle class and urban growth have contributed to a vibrant consumer market and created strong demand for modern goods, particularly information and communication technologies (ICTs), clothing and automobiles. While the responsibility of a successful transformation agenda rests squarely on the shoulders of African leaders, the pace of this process will undoubtedly be quickened through mutually beneficial partnerships and cooperation with development partners, particularly with regards to foreign direct investment (FDI) and trade. Despite these achievements, negative perceptions of Africa as a high-risk market have obscured the opportunities that the continent can provide to investors.en
