Africa

I thought I would share some interesting things about Africa for any of you who are considering joining the CHI – Ericsson’s Ireland-based Competency Hub that supplies talent to the region. Here goes:

  1. Sub Saharan Africa has a bigger land area than India and China combined.(wow)
  2. The number of languages spoken in Sub Saharan Africa is over a thousand.
  3. More oil is produced in Sub Saharan Africa than in the Middle East. (sorry EMEA!)
  4. Mobile Data penetration is expected to double by 2015
  5. The second largest market in the world for Guinness is Nigeria. (is this why the RSSA CHI is in Ireland?)
