The UK has volunteered to host the African Investment conference this week. Many could argue that this is a form of desperation to hold their control and influence on one of the planet’s greatest economies. This event will be opened by the Prime Minister, addressing African officials , business heads in Africa and the leader of the WTO. Links with the African economy are very important with this continent. There is a huge push for investment currently due to aid cuts of just under £1 bn for this region for the following year. Therefore, the UK government is aiming to replace aid for the continent with trade of products and services.
Is this the correct manner for improving relationships? What would you do?
