Expanding online marketplaces across secondary cities – lessons from Côte d’Ivoire
April 1, 2022Report
Increasing internet connectivity and mobile phone use across Africa is paving the way for the growth of e-commerce across the continent. Between 2014 to 2018, the number of online shoppers in Africa increased on average by 18 per cent every year, compared to a global average of 12 per cent. This surge is driven by Africa’s growing young, urban and digitised population.
