When it comes to Africa, most Japanese people know only about savanna and wild animals, and I guess Africans know very little about Japan as well.

I had a chance to listend to a speech in a business forum that was organized by Japanese and Africans.

The African's speakers were higher ranking civil servants, and CEO from government banks.

Since The main purpose to hold the meeting is to improve African economy, Africa encouraged Japanese companies to invest in their infrastructure.

Also, they said that they need Japanese engineers who teach knowledge and skills to Africans.

The people who attended the forum are elite, but there is a huge gap between rich and poor in Africa.

Escaping poverty and educating children are the priority task.
