All implemented solutions engineered by BEG SASU are presented here as well as how they are done. As a matter of fact, we have engineered a methodology to efficiently contribute to the development of the beautiful continent. It is illustrated by all the cases studies presented within this section.
Europe has looted Africa for centuries, while US was built on slavery without even thanking those who had worked hard for free and it is not even welling to use all its citizens’ brainpowers. Clearly, here is not where to present the West’s history and we as Africans have our own fair shares of injustices as well. This is just to present what should not be replicated when it comes to industrializing the beautiful continent. So, let have a look at East Asia development instead.
“After World War II, the U.S. established a significant presence in Japan to slow the expansion of Soviet influence in the Pacific. The U.S. was also concerned with the growth of the economy of Japan because there was a risk after World War II that an unhappy and poor Japanese population would turn to communism and by doing so ensure that the Soviet Union would control the Pacific.” (Source: Wikipedia) – With aids and assistance from US, Japan was able to create a business environment of extreme competition especially in the sectors that targeted international markets by keeping up with one another, copying new-product designs as well as innovative production techniques (keiretsu). The result is a swift boost to industrial production leading to the economic miracle. Obviously, we do not want to become the product of US imperialism and luckily for us the province of Quebec in Canada had used cooperatives to finance its "Quite Revolution". That is why we started 3 cooperatives in high-value sectors such as gaming, IT, and engineering to finance the industrialization of the beautiful continent. Also, I learnt Japanese and have been in Japan, and I can assure that they are not working harder than anyone; they just do not complain. Obviously, we want people to complain in order to be able to improve; furthermore, we are not trying to catch up with the West, we are working hard for the well-being of all Africans and everyone on earth…
That being said, our approach is to first transit most businesses from the informal to the formal economic sector. That is, before even undertake any project, we will ensure that the project’s owner is or will be legally registered. The reason is just to allow businesses to pay their fair shares to the society by contributing to the country’s wealth (Ask yourself where does the government find some money? It cannot just print them out!). The government also needs some financial resources in order to provide services such as universal healthcare and infrastructure to all; so, let help out by paying our fair shares so that the country does not have to request aids for some favours in return.
Secondly, we will apply all available technologies to increase productivity and generate growth for the selected businesses. In other words, we will not only industrialize the production and automate as much as possible their daily operations, but also provide all necessary training to the personnel. In order to do that, we will entirely finance the development and implementation of the required technologies. In case we could not develop our own technologies or for heavy machineries not yet available on the continent, we will import them from South Korea or Japan. By the way, we favour South Korea and Japan simply because they have been industrialized while keeping their cultures and this is exactly what we think the continent should strive to do better.
Finally, successful businesses will progressively reimburse us so that others can benefit the same procedure again and again until everything are engineered and manufactured on the continent.
As a reminder, this is a collective effort and we are intended to use all the brainpowers available on the continent. Also remember that although Japan was manufacturing low-quality products in the 60s and only started improving in the mid 70s, Japanese are among those who make fun of Chinese’s low-quality products. Today, Japanese economy is in decline and most economists are predicting that it will worsen and will be the most declining in Asia way behind China within the next decade. So, fellow Africans, don’t be afraid to start manufacturing our products, make sure international standards are met and nobody get intoxicated, and never stop improving; only idiots will make fun of your products. Also, whatever you decide to do, please legally register your activities in your country or neighbour country and if you are not on the continent, ensure that the headquarters is in Africa. The reason is that, the more value-added companies we have on the continent that are contributing to our GDP, the wealthier the continent will be and the cheapest it will be for our governments to borrow on international market in order to provide modern services to everybody in their respective countries. Obviously, it is a bit more complicated than that, but it is a good start… If you don’t know anything or how to do something, please let us know and we will explain it to you or teach you how to do it. Also if you have a better idea, please let us know and we will get inspired.
With that in mind, have a look to different implementations of this methodology by selecting any use case scenario available and also track its execution progress. We choose a business based on the overall impact of the industrialization, meaning the more industrial sectors the business operates with, the more likely it will be chosen.
