There are three key reasons why Africa is a good investment right now. First, there is a young and growing population on the continent that will strengthen the workforce. Second, Africans are spending a total of $4 trillion annually between consumption and investment, and that number is expected to rise in the coming years. Third, Africa's economy is strengthening and diversifying, allowing for the development of new industries, including tourism, in certain countries.
