About Cape Verde

The islands of Cape Verde were uninhabited until the 15th century. It is now a culturally diverse country whose Portuguese and various African influences can be seen from its language, art, or textiles. Since gaining its independence in 1975, Cape Verde has had a stable government and economy, with the Cape Verden Escudo historically pegged to the Portuguese Escudo, and the Euro since 1998.

The population among the 9 islands is extremely uneven, with the western ones sparsely settled, and over half the country living on the São Tiago Island, home of the capital Praia. Due to complicated climatic conditions, and repeated famines, Cape Verde’s population has heavily fluctuated in the past, resulting in waves of emigration. With the adoption of more restrictive emigration laws in the most recent decades, population growth has increased. 

Why conduct market research

Cape Verde’s economy is heavily dependent on FDI, remittances, and tourism. Services, such as commerce, transport, tourism, and public services, account for approximately three quarters of the GDP. However, the country is home to strong infrastructure and attracts a lot of foreign investors. The country is also a strategic location to access other markets in West Africa.

The population fluctuations in the country make reliable and representative market research projects in Cape Verde difficult.
