    Germany has a good export game. So maybe.

    The UK? Same problem.

    The UK got global finance on lock. They don't need Africa like that.

    They need resources. If they didn't need Africa like that, they would have never colonized in the first place. They certainly wouldn't be scrambling for Africa now.
