Madagascar Country Overview

Geographic location: Approximately 400 kilometers off the Eastern African coast lies Madagascar: the largest island of the Indian Ocean.

Population: With more than 28 million habitants, Madagascar represents a significant prospective market opportunity. Spoken languages are Malagasy and French.

Economy: This African country is known for its natural resources (especially precious stones and crystals) and handicrafts. However, many people in Madagascar live in poverty, particularly in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. This has impacted economic growth. While most sectors were struggling in the past years, Madagascar is now recovering slowly but surely from this economic shock… And there lies the opportunity!
