France’s economic and military strategy in Africa for the coming years will be unveiled by French President Emmanuel Macron.
In a speech at the Elysee presidential palace on Monday, Macron is expected to call for a more balanced partnership with African nations.
The French president will begin an African tour in Gabon, Angola, the Republic of Congo, and Congo on Wednesday.
The speech on Monday comes at a time when France’s influence on the continent has never been more challenged in recent decades.
French troops had to withdraw from Mali after less than a year, opening the door to Russian military contractors.
French forces have also recently left Burkina Faso, which appears to be increasingly looking to Moscow.
