As of the past few years, Africa has been turning heads across the globe. They are in the midst of a great economic change, you see, with a booming oil industry and a fast growing population. Already we are witnessing countries across the world taking contracts in African infrastructure, prospecting for African students, or even industries like Guinness taking root and selling product there.
Africa is now in the process of embracing democracy; Nigeria has had democratically elected governments in power since 1999, and was one of the first countries in Africa to do so. The most recent government, which was elected in May 2015, has already formally assured foreign investors that their ventures will be safe and secure. Canada has had heavy hands in helping such smooth democratic processes come to pass over the past 15 years, and has also been running a program to help strengthen the electoral reform process there. Nigeria has often been a starting point for many African movements, and many people who have played critical roles in Africa’s development have called Nigeria home. Alvan Ikoku, who was basically the founder of African education, hails from Nigeria, for example. He’s the man you see on the ten naira bill of Nigerian currency.
Beautiful City. Beautiful People.
Vancouver is the vacation destination of choice for British Columbians, Canadians, and international tourists. There are a vast amount of urban and cultural attractions, from arts and sports to amusement parks and shopping — not to mention world-class opportunities for outdoor pursuits.
British Columbia’s spectacular landscapes provide the backdrops for a wide range of adventures, including mountains, rivers, beaches, forests, parks, lakes and the amazing BC hot springs. Or, if relaxation is more your thing, BC is host to excellent wine tastings and spas. At any rate, you’ll soon see for yourself why British Columbia’s tourism business is the second biggest industry in the province.
British Columbia is Canada’s westernmost province, nestled between the Pacific Ocean in the west and the majestic Rocky Mountains in the east. British Columbia generally enjoys a temperate climate- until you visit the mountains, which are renowned for their world-class skiing terrain. It really doesn’t get much better than that.Request More Info
