This chapter examines instances of cooperation between particular African countries and countries in the North and cases of barriers to people and goods originating from the region. The relationship between Africa and the developed North has consistently been an imbalanced African dependency on the North. The African continent continues to be exploited. It all started with the European and Arab exploits that ushered in the inhuman slave trade. Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) has become the most important transfer from the developed North to the developing South, followed by migrant remittances and Overseas Development Assistance (ODA) in descending order. Migrant remittances from the North to developing countries currently rank second to FDI and exceed ODA. In Africa, Morocco and Egypt lead the pack of recipients. The concept of co-development has been initiated by France to collaborate with the countries of emigration in establishing programmes and projects that would benefit migrants and stem the flow of potential migrants.
