A WORD FROM THE EDITOR


Dear visitor and international investor,



We warmly welcome you, if this is your first visit to Africabiz Online - The ultimate newsletter on trading and investing in 49 sub-Saharan African countries. If you are a regular and faithful reader, welcome back.

- IMAGINATION AND ORGANIZATION HELP BUILD A STRONG ECONOMY

The beginning of this April month 2005 had seen two obituaries. The death of Roman Catholics' Pope John Paul II on April 3, 2005 and the passing of Prince Rainier of Monaco on April 6, 2005.

Pope 's death and burial received a worldwide media coverage. In the contrary, the Prince's death received was less broadcast as is should have been.

Sure, Pope John Paul II left a message of peace for the world that should be pursued by political, religious and opinion leaders worldwide for the sake of the humanity' survival. For only peaceful resolutions of political differences would save the humankind from a total destruction; because a global war would be a nuke one, and that would be the end of the humanity on earth. Owing to the current existing political international tensions, the window gap to avoid the looming disaster is very narrow.

Let us hope that political, religious and opinions leaders, and the mainstream world citizens alike would make it together towards the final settlement of peace on earth.

One thing that would contribute to the establishment of world peace is, doubtless, the fight against poverty worldwide.

In a previous delivery titled
: The World Will Never Be The Same After September 11, 2001, we stated the following: "For a better world it is necessary that we, as citizens of the global village, search for other ways and means to address poverty, oppression and injustice.
"

That is where Prince Rainier of Monaco's legacy comes in. He inherited the throne from his grand- father Louis II in 1949 with an economy based on casinos business and tourism (47% of national budget revenues).

He diversified the economy and made the principality a financial powerhouse based on three pillars: Finance, Real State and Services (VIP tourist's destination, acclaimed world Conference Center and Big Sports events - Formula I Grand Prix, ATP Tennis Circuit. Etc.) At his death, casinos' business represents only 4% of budget revenues.

Monaco's Prince Rainier III demonstrated during his stay in power how imagination and organization could help a leader build up a strong diversified economy. He sets an example for African nations to follow suit using imagination and organization as political and economic leverages to change their poverty stricken countries to prosperous ones.

- FOWL BREEDING AS BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY: PART IX - CONCLUSION ABOUT POULTRY BREEDING OPERATIONS IN AFRICA

Considering information available in several deliveries [66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71], and due to untapped existing chicken meat market in Africa amounting to US$ 20 billions, we reached the conclusion that it is possible to establish 30,000 medium-scale chicken breeding operations in sub-Saharan African countries that would generate direct jobs to 150,000 workers and 30,000 managers.

That shows there are opportunities throughout the continent to establish chicken breeding companies to cater for national demands in spite of the unfair competition exercised by import from Europe, provided that operators take necessary managerial and production decisions to control costs of production.

Courtesy of Attra.org- In addition to the medium-scale operations above briefly outlined, hundred thousand "family operations" could be established as people's income building power in African nations. Because when one speaks of fowl breeding, one should include pentads, geese, ducks and not only familiar poultry, which picture is available above.

Diversifying the production is the key to beat the competition on national level and fight against imports.
It had been briefly exposed here how it is possible to start cheap and growth "wealthy" fast breeding Muscovy duck. The same is possible with goose and pentad.

Next delivery to be issued on May 15, 2005, shall consider a category of birds that do not fly: the family of birds called ratites, represented by the Ostrich and the Emu.

Ratites are running birds that produce flesh similar to four legs' animals. The breeding of ratites is a capitalistic business in comparison to poultry, pentad and duck breeding in the sense that the purchase of initial stock of birds cost more money. However, it could yield substantial benefits for the clever investor to enter the traditional livestock meat industry's business.
