The Danish government is launching a new political initiative ‘Opportunity Africa’ in order to boost Denmark’s presence in Africa. Opportunity Africa combines foreign policy, development co-operation as well as trade and investment. The initiative supports an inclusive and green economic growth in Africa.
Despite the positive economic development the past decade in African countries, they still face risks and challenges that could undermine or even reverse their achievements. These risks include extreme poverty, inequality, fragile states and defining the right type of governance to ensure sustainable exploitation of natural resources.
