Ways To Take Africa From 3rd Up To 1st World

The gap between industrialized countries and developing countries is still too big. New and more appropriate strategies have to be re-thought in order to take today’s third-world countries to first-world conditions.

Africa is one of the most debated continents where the level of development is still insufficient to cover the entire process and need of the local population. Of course, there are certain countries like Kenya that are performing very well – in consequence of foreign investments that have been placed on local industries. But it’s still true that most African countries are struggling to fight against hunger and lack of resources.

What Is Necessary To Do?

In order to upgrade a country’s economical activity and role in the world it’s essential to focus on these main points:

  • Education, the more people are educated, the faster the entire country can go through modernization
  • Income growth, workers and employees should receive a higher wage so they can become consumers and give the local economy a spin forward
  • Social security, the government should assure people a good level of social safety and public order
  • Political stability is another main factor which impacts the timing of a country’s development

The bottom line is that all these strategies require appropriate financing. As mentioned above, Kenya is stepping forward on the way to progress and development basically thanks to foreign investors (from China) who intended to buy Kenyan industries and companies, for example the aviation company.

What Can Small Investors Do In The Meanwhile?

There are many ways even small investors can make their difference in the financial environment and, in particular, in the development of African countries.

Trading solutions may come useful in this specific framework - EU Capital is a worldwide appreciated trading broker firm which provides comfortable trading models and opportunities to new investors.

You can process trades in several different global markets, including of course African most important companies, although the broker is more specialized on forex solutions.

Anyways, if you are wondering is EuCapital trading a scam?, just consider that this firm is reviewed and commented positively by different financial guides and experts.

African Fashion

+ AFRICAN FASHION (F)


 Africans fashion is as fascinating a subject as anything African. The way we have dressed from antiquity to now have not been properly documented. How Africans invented locks, combs, royal crowns and jewelry is not comment knowledge. How pageantry and glamour have spread to southern Europe from ancient Nubians and the mores that occupied for 1000 years

 

Africans have used nature at its prime to dress and have mastered the manipulations of metals and gems (Ashanti, Nubians, Ancient Egyptians, Zulus, Ndebele, Toucouleur and Berbers to create sparks and fire inside the kingdoms bedrooms .African Man and Women fashion, royal and tribal wears at their best from antiquity to now could be the subject of 100 of books podcast and radio shows. As Africa develops furiously, an educated middle class will demand quality and skillful fashion designers will have to deliver quality products that will strongly impact how Africa’s richest and hopefully all Africans dress at home, at work and for fun.

 The pioneers that have been blazing a modern trail of African fashion inside and out of the continent are   especially when they stay true to their African roots. We salute the ones that could truly focus on African fashion without conflating fashion with gender issues or the agenda of certain forces that utilize urban fashion to sale a value system where man in particular deviate from their divine creation and purpose,  Manhood.

 By showcasing the outrageous hair show, the African fashion industry, history, current state and trends we are hoping to leave the visitor with a strong desire to consume African fashion and support the industry around the world.We want people to understand the keys players, understand the challenges of staying authentically African in the middle of a cultural warfare aiming at exploiting the creativity of Africans, copying their fashions ingenuities without giving them their rightful place.

 Today many black people are lacking the African fashion conscientiousness that could boost the fashion economy and protect artist from china dumping policies that have already devastated many small fashion business  in Africa.Self-esteem, race identity, ethnic pride, lifestyle, cultural expressions need to affect positively the branding and marketing of African fashion. We hope the desire to make huge money deals with retail companies and distributors and the fear of being called too ethnic does not phase the creativity of young fashion designers that need also to focus on their local market to remain relevant and authentically African.

The Knowing Africa Project is trying to create a comprehensive blueprint of fashion in the continent with an emphasis on the best that we have to offer to ourselves.
