The French President, Emmanuel Macron, will present the direction of his Africa policy for the coming years today at the Elysée, within a tour through Gabon, Angola, Congo, and the Democratic Republic of Congo planned from the 1st to 5th of March.

At the start of his speech, Emmanuel Macron wished to highlight his “deep humility in the face of what is happening on the African continent”, a context which he describes as  “a situation without precedent in history”, with “a sum of dizzying challenges.

“From the challenge of climate security to the demographic challenge of young professionals, whom we must offer every African country a future,” he explained, it was necessary “to consolidate states and administrations, massively in education, health, employment, training, transformation energy ” declared Emmanuel Macron.

The president subsequently announced a “framework law” for “new restitutions” of works of art “for the benefit of African countries that request it”.
