South African Gateway
Africa is home to the world's fastest growing, working-age urban populations. The total population is expected to double to 2 billion by 2050, with 40 percent living in urban areas. These burgeoning urban middle classes are fueling a rise in Africa's global trade in everything from imported beverages to fiber optic equipment.
According to the United States' President's Advisory Council on Doing Business in Africa, African states will spend between US$50 billion to US$90 billion yearly on infrastructure projects that offer an average rate of return of 29 percent.
