HUGE OPPORTUNITIES FOR SRI LANKAN COMPANIES IN AFRICA
As a company engaged in facilitating market entry for corporates as well as global investors, global strategy consulting firm Stax is seeing renewed interest in African countries as of late. Stax recently assisted a Sri Lankan FMCG market leader to tap into the burgeoning consumer market in East Africa by helping it find suitable in-country partners. As a whole, Africa has become more peaceful and stable over the last decade. The World Health Organization reports that deaths through conflict in Africa declined by 95 percent between 2000 and 2012. This improved peace and stability is starting to reap economic benefits for African nations.
