Africa ranks high on Europe’s – and especially Germany’s – political agenda for 2017. The broader framework of relations is in flux, with the United States’ economic policies turning inward, China’s economic growth tailing off, and a number of economic partnership agreements between the EU and African regions coming into force.
Africa is a priority of the German G20 Presidency, but there are also discussions about ideas for a Marshall Plan proposed by the German Minister for Economic Cooperation and the President of the European Parliament respectively. These initiatives open up opportunities for Germany and Europe to evolve the foundations of cooperation with Africa.
