With the foreign ministers' meeting in Bonn, the G20 process is gaining momentum.
Pope Francis has backed German Chancellor Angela Merkel's fight against climate change during a private audience in the Vatican. The pope also welcomed Merkel's decision to emphasize Africa at the upcoming G20 summit.
The G20 wants to support private investments in Africa through a 'Compact with Africa.' The aim is to provide jobs and higher standards of living. But what do people in Africa think about the plan?
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has underscored the importance of combating poverty in Africa as a way to stem the mass migrant flow to Europe. Merkel has made ties with Africa the focus of Germany's G20 presidency.
With new reform partnerships, Germany wants to help Africa move forward. But the German G20 initiative is loaded with excessive expectations, says Claus Stäcker.
