A WORD FROM THE EDITOR


Dear visitor and international investor,

If this is your first visit to AFRICABIZ ONLINE Monthly Issue - The ultimate newsletter on trading and investing in 48 sub-Saharan African countries - we warmly welcome you.

If you are a regular and faithful reader, welcome back.

PER CAPITA GROSS NATIONAL PRODUCT (GNP) VERSUS PARITY PURCHASING POWER (PPP)

Per capita GNP represents the total market value of all the goods and services produced by a nation during a specified period divided by the number of inhabitants.

PPP is based on a theory, which states the exchange rate between two currencies adjusts - over a long term - to relative price levels (to purchasing the same category of goods or services existing in different countries). Briefly stated, one dollar buys more quantity of services or goods in a developing country than in a developed one .

The result is PPP valuation exceeds per Capita GNP when applied to developing countries. Is that correct? Is it true that a developing country citizen can enjoy the same living standard as the citizen of a developed country? Click here to read more about the matter

- Contributor's Guidelines are here to review. Your contribution on "How African countries / entrepreneurs could bridge the developing gap" is welcome.

Many thanks for dropping by and see you here on April 15, 2004.

i- ROOTS & TUBERS 54, 55, 56, 57, 58)

- TROPICAL ROOTS AND TUBERS: (VI) - COMPONENTS TO THE STRATEGIC INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT SCHEME

Cassava, potato, and sweet potato rank among the top 10 food crops produced in developing countries. Sub-Saharan Africa - SSA - is expected to experience the fastest growth in food demand for all roots and tubers, largely driven by rapid population's growth. SSA share in the total demand for developing countries will be 53 percent, with cassava accounting for two-thirds of the increase.

On the online monthly page of AFRICABIZ are listed four processed cassava's products, which highlight the fact that cassava could be an important components - an Economic Catalyst - to the Integrated Economic Development Scheme

Briefs on the preparation of fresh cassava prior to the production of chips and pellets are reported here. Operating conditions to producing cassava ships on a small-scale basis are posted here. Last issue dealt with Investment briefs to producing cassava floor with small-scale industrial units. Each unit can create 60 jobs. That means 60,000 jobs if 1,000 units are installed. That is a lot for rural areas in a developing country.

We invite you to review above links. They demonstrate that Roots and Tubers are "economic catalysts" components to the Integrated Developing Scheme. The developing scheme is labeled "integrated" because it blends harmoniously Agriculture, Industries and Services. It is represented on figure below and exposed in the article titled: Strategy For African Countries

The arrows on above figure schematizes the interactivity (Synergetic Impact Factor) between the several components of the Integrated Developing Scheme. The more and longer there is interactivity between the component parts of the Integrated Sheme (or the more powerful and longer the action of the Synergetic Impact Factor) the stronger the Catch Up Factor that helps the scheme generating double-digit economic growth rates over longer periods.
