Opportunities in East Africa’s transformation
East Africa hosts some of the Earth’s most fertile areas. Driven by Chinese presence and tremendous investment, the region is awash with transport construction activity. If your business is with agriculture, in harvest enhancing measures, transport or agro processing you are wise to proceed to inform yourself further.
Sourcing, distribution and manufacturing of agricultural goods will become possible at completely new levels. Half a dozen modern ports are under construction. The ports link up inland with new inter-regional railroads and highways, in varying states of completion.
Within shortly, the region will be looking to process and ship vast volumes of agricultural products all over the globe. The local markets for food, agricultural inputs and transportation are already under-served and growing.
The transforming region is very likely to present both new opportunities and threats of competition. You will find more information on this website and following links to other sources.
