Why Visit

sophisticated economy. It is already the biggest retail market in sub-Saharan Africa, and the 20th largest in
the world, with a wide array of shopping malls and retail developments, as well as a sizable food and non-food manufacturing sector. Local consumers are highly aspirational and brand conscious, making for a thriving and competitive retail and consumer goods market.

global companies continue to increase investment. As a G20 country, it is considered a
low-risk investment destination for investors looking for a foothold into Africa.
