Value of African Farmland Investments Driven By Middle East Countries’ Land Purchasesgreenworldadmin | Tuesday, January 15th, 2013 | 2 Comments »
We at GreenWorld have long been enthusiastic about our African farmland investment. Its’ paid yearly dividends so far of 16%, 14% and 14% – in a zero rate world, where else can one find legitimate returns like that? We also feel that our African project captures a couple of important global macro trends, namely:
1) The dynamic of a growing population plus shrinking arable land; and
2) The fact that nearly 60% of the world’s uncultivated but potentially arable farmland is in Africa;
3) Food security is becoming an increasingly critical issue for countries globally, especially in the Middle East. Hence, we have seen a number of cases where investors from the Persian Gulf countries are actively purchasing land in Africa. Just as an example, here are two cases of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait purchasing land in Africa.
Taken together, this means there are important global macro trends providing tremendous support for anyone investing in farmland on the continent. For those who may be interested in a high yielding African farmland investment, click here.
