This is what western countries did and still do keep Africa in circle economic dependency and poor.

"In the depth of the recession, some foreign countries made a simple calculation. They'd subsidize their steel industries even though that violates international trade rules. It paid off by keeping their citizens employed, paid and fed.

These countries banked on dumping their excess steel in the United States. That has cost good, family-supporting American jobs. It has wounded the American steel industry. And it has emboldened foreign countries to continue eating America's lunch by violating international trade laws."

Africa's Unfair Battle: The West's Poverty Subsidies

Farmers in Kenya, Burkina Faso and Senegal used to be able to make ends meet. Today they have trouble selling their goods because of subsidized exports from industrial nations that are sold in Africa at dumping prices. But will the West ever change?

Mon Dieu! I find myself agreeing with Sassy.
It's the height of cowardice for African governments to knowingly allow the importation of subsidized agricultural products that are detrimental to local farmers' livelihoods.

"....violates international trade rules". All these international rules are meant to strictly serve the interest of western countries. What is good for the goose oughta be good for the gander.
