Africa is the world’s next great growth story.

And Mitsui & Co. is there—spearheading a business that will help unlock the continent’s full potential. Through our investment in Afrimax Group, we are rolling out LTE high-speed mobile data communications services in Sub-Saharan Africa. Already up and running in Uganda, operations will soon expand to more than 10 other countries.

In a region with low fixed-line penetration, mobile broadband can have a transformative impact, triggering innovations in health care, agriculture and education. With a state-of-the-art communications platform in place, the possibilities for Africa will be truly limitless.

Empowering people around the world to build more prosperous lives is a long-standing tradition at Mitsui & Co. That’s why we are so proud to be part of Africa’s future.

For the world. With the world.
