What they want to do is to throw more taxpayer money at a problem that will never go away due to tribalism, lack of civil societies and economies based on free market capitalism.
Add to the mix countries that have all these three negative traits, and are Islamic to boot, and there you have it, forever basket cases. They need to export western values, convert them on different fronts, including religion and eventually, they’ll become net producers, not permanent dependents.
Merkel’s G20-Africa meet aims to reduce poverty, migrant influx
The idea is to team up African nations willing to reform with private investors who would bring business and jobs to a continent where instability or graft often scare off foreign companies.
Merkel is hosting the initiative as part of Germany’s presidency of the Group of 20 powerful economies, whose leaders meet in the northern port of Hamburg a month later.
Invited to Berlin are Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and the leaders of Ghana, Ivory Coast, Mali, Niger, Rwanda, Senegal and Tunisia.
“In Africa, economic development needs to keep pace with the high and accelerating population growth and promise a future for young people, which would also help to ease migratory pressures,” said Merkel’s spokeswoman Ulrike Demmer.
Germany, Europe’s largest economy, has taken in more than one million asylum seekers since 2015 — more than half from war-torn Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, but also many thousands from Ethiopia, Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa.
