This Map Shows: Africa is HUGE!

The true size of Africa is often underestimated, yet, as the graphic below illustrates, it turns out that the continent is actually larger then the USA, China, India, Japan, and all of Europe COMBINED!! 

Africa is a huge landmass with increasingly recognised potential. The continent currently represents 15% of the world’s population, but only 2.7% of the world’s total GDP, with South Africa and Nigeria representing 33% thereof. That, together with the fact that Africa is the only continent that is not ‘suffering’ from large-scale ageing and slowing demographics, makes it likely that we are set to hear a whole lot about this place in the decades to come!
