Last week saw the World Economic Forum for Africa conference, held in Nigeria, with a fantastic turn-out showing the support for Africa's development. 

The conference saw an incredible promise of $68bn for African development coming from a range of nations present, all starting with a $12bn commitment from the Chinese government. 

Rosler said the amount represented commitments in various critical sectors of the continent like infrastructure, energy, agriculture, education, and health."

The event was also a show of support for the plight of the missing school girls, and the large turn-out showed solidarity in the fight against terrorism. Discussion about agriculture was also high on the agenda, with the Grow Africa initiative doubling their commitments to $72bn.
