    Foreign direct investment into Africa: Emerging markets exceed developed countries in 2012

    The "Ernst & Young’s 2013 Africa Attractiveness survey" published in May 2013 shows that foreign direct investment from emerging markets into Africa outpaced that from developed markets in 2012.

    The "Ernst & Young’s 2013 Africa Attractiveness survey" published in May 2013 shows that foreign direct investment from emerging markets into Africa outpaced that from developed markets in 2012.

    Indeed, greenfield investments on the African continent from emerging markets such as China and United Arab Emirates increased in 2012 (respectively from 28% and 50% ), while those from developed markets, which have been the biggest investors in Africa over the past decades, declined (for example, the United States with –22% and rance with –39%).

    These findings reinforce ACT in its strong belief that the future of the continent lays in the diversification of its partnerships and the development of its collaboration with emerging markets. Thanks to Africa’s growth (more than trebled since 2000), the investors’ interest should be even greater and thus, the potential of the continent over the next decades even bigger.
