British Prime Minister Theresa May made big promises during her first African tour last week, pledging $5.1 billion of investment in the continent during her first stop in Cape Town, South Africa.
May’s visit to three African nations focused on economic ties and migration issues as the United Kingdom works to strengthen and create new diplomatic connections ahead of its planned exit from the European Union. May’s African delegation included 29 business representatives in the fields of technology and finance. Britain also plans to open new embassies in Niger and Chad.
