- Story Text: German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday (August 27) joined African and EU leaders on the steps of the Chancellery for the last Africa summit family photo of her chancellorship.
Merkel has championed the G20 Compact with Africa to support businesses on the continent and stem the flow of migrants to Europe after Germany took in some 1 million refugees, mainly fleeing war in the Middle East, in 2015.
Launched in 2017, the Compact promotes private investment in African partner countries, aiming to ease poverty which, along with political instability and violence, has encouraged large numbers of Africans to head for Europe.
