Areas Where US, UK & Chinese Investments Can Make A Difference In The 54 Nations in Africa 

Road and Rail Construction

Africa requires massive road and rail infrastructure, lack of this has made transportation of goods and services impossible, leading to a huge economic gap. 

The major medium of transportation popularly used in Africa cut across roads and rail, not much is available to meet the ever-increasing movement of people, goods, and services.

The sector has a huge return on investment if venture into. The economy of Africa would only get better if due attention and investments are giving into rail and road constructions.

The UK, US, China, and other major players should invest more in road and rail constructions with a friendly and flexible payback agreement  

Electrification and Urbanization

Africa is the least of all continents regarding electrification and urbanization of towns, villages, and cities, many Africans cities, towns, and villages are to see modernization in infrastructure.

The UK, US, China, and other major players have invested massively in these, more needs to be done as the population of the continent doubles, the population of Africa is increasing geometrically.

The need to invest in the Electrification and Urbanization of Africa is a quest that must be achieved for meaningful progress to be made.

The Western investors should map out plans with Africa’s government to effectively address the lingering problem once and for all

Quality Health Care Delivery

Africa lags when it comes to quality and affordable health care, not only is she starved with health or medical technology to drive home quality health service to her people, but also suffers from unqualified medical personnel to achieve this.

To achieve quality Health Sector, medical technology must be involved, all hands must be on deck to achieve sufficiency in quality health care delivery

The covid-19 pandemic has exposed Africa’s weakness in Health infrastructure, if this gap is not bridged, a disaster may just be at the corner waiting to happen.

Industrialization and Improved Farming System 

Not only is she hungry but lags industrial input to drive home massive industrial revolution, raw material leaves the continent to the West and the Far East, due to lack of technical know-how.

The Chinese investments in addressing Africa’s industrial solutions, if this becomes a reality, will see Africa industries and market competing side by side with the rest of the world
