Susana, indeed Africa will become like Brazil and possibly surpass it sooner than later as it is composed of 54 countries at various stages of development and with a lot more to offer. Some of the challenges in Africa are due to the enormous diversity on the continent in terms of culture, tribes, languages, education levels, religious beliefs, natural resources, etc. BUT all this is what makes Africa, the most diverse region in the world, very attractive as investors and visitors alike are pleasantly surprised to find that it is easier to get understood in any of the main business languages – English, French, Italian, German, and Portuguese – even in remote villages compared to more developed countries and emerging markets (BRICS). That said, challenges as you highlighted in both regions still abound which presents us with many opportunities for growth and development for years to come.
