For several years now, Africa has been more and more appealing as an expat destination. Many countries of the continent, for instance South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana and Botswana, offer political stability, interesting growth and attractive professional and investment opportunities. The fight against corruption, the measures taken for better management of natural resources and their industries (particularly oil and precious stones), a strong investment in the development of infrastructure or the establishment of advantageous tax systems are just a few examples of why Africa is well on its way to become the “continent of the future”.
