AU’s G20 Membership Signals Redesign of Global Trade, Finance, Investment Architecture 

The Group Of The World’s 20 Leading Economies has admitted the African Union (AU) as a permanent member, a development termed by many as a “later than never” acknowledgement of Africa’s relevance on the global stage.

Until now, South Africa was the bloc’s only G20 member and the AU had advocated for full membership for seven years in its quest to gain meaningful roles among the global bodies and also accord the 55 member states access to reforms in the global financial system such as the World Bank which had hitherto played a passive role in cushioning Africa’s debt profile.

The AU’s G20 membership which was granted following a concession at the 18th G20 heads of state and government summit in New Delhi, India, is expected to see Africa get investment and political interest from a new generation of global powers beyond the U.S. and the continent’s former European colonists.
