Cape Verde’s economy has been growing at a steady rate over the last few years. Subsistence agriculture, particularly in beans and maize, makes up most of the economy. However, coffee and bananas are Cape Verde’s main crop exports.
Despite being an impoverished nation, according to the United Nations Index Cape Verde (also known as Cabo Verde) has the highest quality of life out of all countries in West Africa.
Expats enjoy the lifestyle of Cape Verde. It is a peaceful and safe country with low crime rates, beautiful beaches, warm weather year-round, and a heady mix of culture and heritage.
There are a few international schools around Cape Verde.
Cape Verde has significantly improved its healthcare provisions to such an extent that its universal healthcare system now serves as an ‘inspiration’ according to NGO The Borgen Project. Its healthcare is far stronger than in other African countries, in part thanks to Benin’s efforts to decentralise healthcare institutions.
