After Ghana and Nigeria in West Africa, Emmanuel Macron sailed for the Horn of the Continent. Whether in Djibouti, Kenya or Ethiopia where he went, Emmanuel Macron spoke business, opening new business opportunities for France and its manufacturers. Extending the spectrum of offers and prospects for his country, the French president redraws the traditional map of the partners of France made previously colonies, Franco-African's privileged relationship. And this is not a calendar opportunity that brings Emmanuel Macron to the new "lions of Africa". Like other countries on the continent, including Côte d'Ivoire and Senegal, France's "children who love", the conversation is pushed between Greater China and Djibouti, Nairobi and Addis Ababa. Therefore it is an opportunity for Paris, with them staying on the summit, to get closer to its new partners and especially to try to pay for the delay in the yellow penetration in Africa.
Even for Once there is no danger at home, it encourages France to enrich his palette of "friends", especially the old land is no longer the vast green where the raw materials are so many and the populations are slaves of consumers. Furthermore, relations between France and its pre-square are marked by an unmarked trade stamp between former colonized and colonizers. This original offense, from which Françafrique had begun, and which allowed ancestors to use Gauls to abuse paternalism to dictate French-speaking Africans on the road and impose leaders whose sole purpose is to protect the interests of the lord, will not be put into new French conquests. Interactions between new "friends" are undoubtedly healthy and especially built in win-win partnerships. In this logic, economic partnerships between France and the English speaking countries, most of them maintain almost all their traditional culture and values, the pillars of all real- development, may serve as models for a new deal "new deal" between Paris and all its partners, including seniors. Furthermore, the awakening of the people, the birth of an African opinion and the diversity of partners, is all the data that will serve to return from a multipolar world, perhaps more just. In any case, if there are many opportunities offered to industrialists from the banks of the Seine, on the contrary, Kenyans and Ethiopia will offer a French market, especially for products such as coffee, tea or others.
It is now clear that Africa is in a position to regain its place in international trade, by diversifying its partnerships and, above all, by the desire to greatly expand the status of being its slave. And it is evident that French intercontinental assistance and intervention in the continent will have different colors. Nations ask themselves the privileges of former colonists and thus the priority of France's actions has been warned.
