On 20 November this year, Chancellor Olaf Scholz will host the first Compact with Africa Summit under his leadership. Launched in 2017 by Germany through the G20 Finance Track, the initiative aims to improve investment conditions in participating African countries and thus ultimately promote European investment in Africa. The outcome so far looks mixed. We discussed the reasons for this, where the initiative stands and how it can be made more successful for all sides and sustainably oriented towards inclusive economic growth and job creation with representatives from the academic, business and political spheres.
