Logo: Marshall Plan with Africa

With the publication of the 'Cornerstones for a Marshall Plan with Africa', the BMZ launched a discussion on the future cooperation with the continent. Until February 26, there was the opportunity to participate in the discussion about our proposed ideas and solutions.

On our website alone, the Marshall Plan with Africa was viewed more than 25,000 times. On the BMZ Facebook page, the plan has been shared 378 times so far and commented on more than 400 times. In total, we reached around 137,000 people via Facebook.

We would like to thank all the participants and will now evaluate the numerous comments and feedback and integrate them into the further development of the Marshall Plan with Africa. The consultations are now continuing at the international political level.

The current state of our draft can be found here.
