Plan to nurture African economies unites fractious G20Baden-Baden (Germany) (AFP) – Ministers from the world’s top economies heralded plans to boost development in Africa on Saturday, at an otherwise fractious G20 gathering in Germany. Berlin, which holds the presidency of the powerful nations’ club this year, has made a hoped-for “Compact with Africa” a top priority for 2017. Africa’s future represents “a major geopolitical risk” but also a “chance”, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble told reporters Friday as the meeting got under way in the genteel western spa town of Baden Baden.
