A Marshall Plan with Africa

Logo: Marshall Plan with Africa

We need a paradigm shift; we have to realise that Africa is not the continent of cheap commodities but that the people of Africa need infrastructure and a future.
German Development Minister Gerd Müller

With the publication of the 'Cornerstones of a Marshall Plan with Africa', the Federal Development Ministry kicked off a discussion about what its cooperation with Africa should look like in the future. The African partner countries with which Germany is engaged in development cooperation, as well as the private sector and academia, the churches, society and policymakers, were all invited to discuss the ideas and solutions proposed in the Marshall Plan and to help develop them further.

Thank you very much for the many valuable contributions to this discussion!

We are now evaluating the comments and suggestions we received via email, post or the website. They will be then incorporated into the next version of the Marshall Plan with Africa.
