German chancellor Olaf Scholz made his third visit to sub-Saharan Africa in two years, with a focus on strengthening economic ties and discussing trade and investment opportunities.
Schol’s trip to Nigeria, Ghana, Tanzania and Zambia comes ahead of the November 20, 2023 meeting of African and G20 countries in Berlin, where Germany will focus on economic relations with countries linked to the reform of Berlin’s “compact with Africa” initiative.
During his meeting with Nigerian president Bola Tinubu, Scholz pushed for further development of Nigeria’s capacity to meet local needs, while also seeking improved trade relations with Nigeria. The two leaders also discussed cooperation on regional and global issues such as migration, security and the rampant coups in west and central Africa.
