G20 countries have made commitments to support Africa’s economy by encouraging efforts to reduce illegal immigration.
The leaders have also called on Africa’s private sector to seize available opportunities to promote sustainable development which will lead to the creation of jobs.
The move they say will help in the fight against poverty which will then discourage Africans from engaging in dangerous trips to Europe.
NGO’s consider the approach disappointing because although it will boost the private sector, it does not in any way compel rich countries in their commitment to development assistance.
For now the decisions taken concerns only six African countries which are already pulling investors and are not the main source of migrants to Europe.
They are Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Morocco, Rwanda, Senegal and Tunisia.
