For decades, the biggest business opportunities in Africa were created through “traditional” sources, especially from the trade and export of raw and non-value-added commodities such as crude oil, timber, gold, coal, cocoa, tea, coffee, leather and several others.

These business opportunities are simmering beneath Africa’s endless stream of unsolved problems, underserved needs and everyday frustrations.

Tens of thousands of migrants, many of them from West Africa but also Bangladesh, Somalia, Sudan and Eritrea, are being held in camps and warehouses on the Libyan coast, hoping to reach Europe. When the warehouses become overcrowded, or if migrants are unable to pay traffickers for the boat journey towards Italy – where many are rescued by NGO-operated vessels – they are sold. The existence of modern-day slave markets has been known for months, with testimony from the International Organisation for Migration and other humanitarian agencies, but last week CNN obtained video footage of one such auction. In scenes reminiscent of the 19th century, when the slave trade was rife, auctioneers advertised a group of West African migrants as “big strong boys for farm work.” The auctioneers refer...
According to the 2014 Bertelsmann Transformation Index (BTI), many countries in central and western Africa are experiencing a stagnation or decline in the transformation of their market economies. In Guinea, which is largely reliant on fishing and agriculture to feed and employ the nation, the promise of democratization has been hampered by ethnic tensions and the postponement of fair elections. But that is not stifling initiative. Almost ten years ago, farmers from Samaya, west of the capital Conakry, got together to set up a cooperative. Today the organization has more than 200 members and counting. Forty new producers have applied to join since the start of the year, and the cooperative is now offering practical training on its plantations. More information: http://www.dw.de/program/glo...
