Business Is Booming Between UK & Africa

Did you know that the number of UK SMEs that have experienced growth of 50 per cent or more since 2013 has doubled, according to a new report from Citrix and YouGov?[1].

It is encouraging to know that the UK economy is growing and proving promising prospects for business to grow and flourish.

Another fact: Africa is home to 6 of the top 10 fastest growing countries in the world?
