Germany proposes Marshall Plan with Africa

“The humanity of the world can be measured against the fate of Africa,” declared Horst Köhler, the former German president, more than 10 years ago. Germany is now making the African continent a focus of its G20 presidency. The German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development published a draft report called, “Cornerstones of a Marshall Plan with Africa,” advocating for a new partnership between Africa and Europe. Ten starting points have been put forward for discussion, mainly focusing on youth, employment, private sector engagement, African ownership and solutions. The Ministry is encouraging an open discussion and is seeking feedback on its Marshall Plan draft until 26 February 2017.
