Key Industries

Agriculture

Agriculture IndustryHistorically, the agriculture industry has played an important role in the global economy. In Africa, the agriculture industry accounts for over one-third of the GDP and employs almost half of all workers.

AgricultureIn order to maximize crops and profits, there is important work that needs to be done in order to modernize the industry. This includes the use of improved technology, upgraded equipment, irrigation systems, and improved transportation.
The agriculture industry may also play an important role in helping China and America meet its increasing need for agricultural products. China’s need for agricultural products may double over the next 25 years, possibly requiring more imports from regions such as Africa.??In order to achieve this growth and increase in production, it is critical to modernize and maximize the agricultural sector; equipping farmers across the country with the equipment and technology to be more efficient; and developing technology to advance the industry in the future. While the agriculture industry is traditionally a strong performer, there is still strong potential to grow and evolve this industry even further.

Mining

miningThe mining sector Ghana is one of the leading contributors to the economy and GDP of many countries across the globe. Mining is an area of strong potential growth as there is still large amounts of gold and other minerals that are untapped.
The strategy for this sector centers around developing a large scale mining operation to produce minerals such as gold, iron ore and diamonds. Some of the produced minerals will be used to generate income, while others will be used to export key resources back to China and America.

mining operationOnce operational and functional, the mining operation will be an income producing sector that will generate greater returns for the ICP Group and its partners.

Gold and other natural resources will be the catalyst for the establishment of a Commodity Exchange and the capitalization of the Sovereign Wealth Fund across Ghana and portions of West Africa.
We would utilize the Supply Chain Management theory, a downstream process that would established and put in place to sell the acquired gold and diamonds at retail in China, America and other countries resulting in multiple potential revenue streams.

Man looking at phoneThe mining industry is an excellent sector for potential high rate of returns. The strategy is to establish large-scale mining operations in order to generate revenue and to collateralize current and future projects that are proposed. This is a long-term strategy as this sector will take financial resources and commitments in order to establish the operations and begin producing materials from the mines.

The benefit to this strategy is that the mining sector has the ability to potentially offset some construction costs for other sectors by producing necessary raw materials such as iron ore, as well as control the export of minerals such as manganese ore, diamonds and gold that are a direct result of our mining operations.

Oil & Gas

Energy (Oil & Gas Sector and Power Generation)

oil and gasThe Energy Sector is an important and growing sector for the ICP Group. Our primary focus is on the oil and gas industry as this sector continues to be a fast growing industry across Africa as well as globally. The industry holds the potential to change the countries both economically and socially for decades to come.

Tremendous opportunities exist in this area as countries rapidly try to get up to full production while keeping up with the fast developing and changing sector. Growth potential exists from both an exploration/discovery standpoint as well as a production aspect including the construction of an additional refineries to serve the increasing demands.

The oil and gas sector holds the potential for great returns but is an area that may take years to begin producing sustainable results and income.

Banking

BankingThe Financial Sector is what drives the global economy. The ICP Group has strong relationships across the financial sector from financial institutions, institutional investors, foreign investors (through EB5), as well as private sector investment partners. The ICP Group utilizes a variety of financial vehicles to invest in, and fund projects both in the United States and abroad. This includes Public Private Placement (PPM) and Sovereign Wealth Fund.
America’s banking system is made up of a network of banks that form a distribution channel which provides liquidity for Americans. If all the banks that make up the distribution channel were healthy and working together, it is easier to control the flow of money. What keeps money from getting to all points within the distribution network are the toxic and non-performing assets held by these banks. These assets are paralyzing the banks’ ability to do business.
The result is that the distribution channel becomes clogged and unorganized. If we can remove these toxic assets from the banks’ balance sheets, we can unclog the distribution channel, organize banking, and restore the flow of money for growth throughout America.

A public/private sector solution specifically developed for the community banks would allow these banking institutions to continue investing in the neighborhoods and communities in their service areas.

Well capitalized, organized, and healthier banks will be capable of unfreezing the issuance of credit to small businesses, further strengthening urban economies by encouraging the production of goods and services, as well as putting the unemployed back to work.

Real Estate

Development/Construction & Property Management
Commercial and Residential real estate in the United States and abroad is the cornerstone of our business. Our purpose is to advance and grow the residential and commercial real estate industry by focusing on finance, development and construction of quality commercial, residential and mixed-use developments to meet increased demand. This sector plays a pivotal role in achieving economic, social and political advancement.

The strategy is to target strategic projects for development. We seek projects that not only will help alleviate the increased demand for both commercial and residential real estate, but will also impact communities and regions from a social, economic and civic standpoint. We focus our growth strategy on the key areas of residential housing units and commercial to help keep pace with the increased demand.

Market Conditions
Throughout the past 50 years, the real estate industry has witnessed an explosion in the growth of suburban areas in the United States while there has been a relative neglect of inner city core areas of major American cities. The migration of residents to the suburbs left urban residents with limited access to essential services, including sub-par retail options, diminishing housing stock, and fewer office and manufacturing jobs. Furthermore, the lack of economic development and upwardly mobile residential tax base in urban communities ignited crime, narcotics proliferation, and vacant and abandoned housing.

Currently, due to population growth, governmental policies, traffic congestion, and economic incentives for re-development offered on the behalf of major cities, urban centers are experiencing tremendous growth in virtually every area of the country. Residents are moving back into cities and purchasing homes in order to raise families, businesses are signing commercial leases in urban areas, and best-in-class retailers such as Home Depot, Target, and Whole Foods are opening stores in urban centers throughout the country. Notwithstanding the foregoing, urban centers are severely “under-retailed”. These market shifts have altered the real estate industry. The residential market is experiencing a shortage in affordable housing for residents at the lower and middle-income economic levels. Due to the proliferation of rental apartments being converted to condos, the rental market is underserved.

We believe that the lack of affordable housing, rental apartments, and retail, combined with existing imbalances in the supply/demand of commercial and residential properties within these markets, create attractive real estate development investment opportunities in urban sub-markets. As the downtown markets of urban centers mature, the urban sub-markets will become more attractive to suburban residents, businesses and retailers because housing costs and office and retail leases are relatively affordable. The shift to urban sub-markets provides investment and development opportunities for the Company and its investors. We will utilize the extensive network of local owners and real estate brokers, and its industry and governmental relationships to generate an extensive flow of potential transactions.

Transportation

(Airport, Port and Harbors and Railroad)
TransportationIn order for many cities and countries to advance both economically and socially, a modernized and viable transportation network must be established that connects all regions of a country. At the core of a modernized transportation network is an upgraded and expanded rail network. This is the ICP Groups core focus within the transportation sector. The upgraded rail network will be a private sector initiative that will feature both freight and passenger service.
A revitalized rail system will have the capability to connect all regions of a country allowing citizens the opportunity to move more freely about the country. Our initial area of focus will be in the United States and in West Africa, specifically the country of Ghana.
A revamped rail network would provide a mechanism for governments to advance and implement its economic, political and social goals for their country.
Just as with the original railroad that was built in back in the last 1800’s, this critical form of transportation has the ability to once again change the dynamics of the transportation sector.
