On November 20th of this year, Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz is hosting the first Compact with Africa summit under his leadership. The initiative, launched by Germany in 2017 through the G20 Finance Track, aims to improve the investment conditions in participating African countries and, ultimately, promote European investments in Africa. The track record is mixed. We will discuss the reasons for this, the status of the initiative, and how it can be designed to be more successful for all parties and geared towards sustainable economic growth with representatives from academia, business, and politics.

We look forward to your participation in this exciting event, which will be conducted in German with English translation.
