There is a resurgence of interest about Africa’s 1 billion people as an emerging market, and the continent's agroecological land, water, labour, energy, and mineral resources. African countries are dynamic growing markets. For example, mobile phone ownership has grown from practically zero to around 50% in only a decade on a purely commercial basis. These improvements in connectivity in Africa are reaching remote towns and rural areas and are transforming lives, and there are similar opportunities for transformation of agriculture as a driver of economic development.
