The accession of the African Union into the Group of 20, G20, conference of the strongest economies in the world would be supported, according to Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, who made the announcement on Monday.

The African nations will be a significant addition to the G20, according to Kishida, because of the union’s “growing influence in international society.”

Senegal and Japan have partnered to increase Senegalese investment and work together on resource development in the area.

We confirmed to create a more comprehensive connection between Japan and Senegal, Kishida said following a meeting with Senegalese President Macky Sall in Tokyo.

A permanent membership for the African Union in the G20 was also declared last week by US President Joe Biden.

Biden stated that African leadership and innovation are essential for addressing some of the most pressing global issues while speaking at a US-Africa Leaders Summit.

Biden continued by saying that the US supports Africa’s membership in the UN Security Council (UNSC).

He said, “Africa belongs at the table in every room – in every room where global challenges are being discussed, and in every institution where discussions are taking place.”

Last week, Joe Biden invited about 49 African leaders in Washington to show the United States’ support for their G20 membership.

The National News reports that the conference was the largest international gathering to take place in Washington since the COVID-19 outbreak began. Additionally, the nation committed to investing $55 billion in Africa over the following three years.
