Sub-Saharan Africa, a part of the African continent south of the Sahara, occupies an area of ​​24.2 million square kilometres and has almost twice the population (875 million) than the EU. It consists of - including adjacent islands - 49 states and yet, despite the low level of development and inequality is one of the fastest growing parts of the world. The unstoppable development of this part of the world is illustrated by the fact that the GDP of sub-Saharan Africa over the last 10 years has tripled, while growth for 2015 estimated by the IMF was at 5.75% and this trend should continue. These are the main reasons why the Ministry of Foreign Affairs pays special attention to the emphasis on looking for opportunities for expansion of Czech exports in Sub-Saharan Africa region.
