This year Germany has made Africa the focus of its G20 presidency through its Compact with Africa and the Marshall Plan for the continent, which together aim to create a more sustainable environment for private sector participation in African economies.

The 12th G20 Summit took place on 7-8 July in Hamburg, Germany, bringing to a close the 2017 German presidency.
