Morocco didn't have roads before it became a French protectorate. Roads, buildings, and other infrastructures were constructed when the French arrived in the early 1900s [ 1 ] . Railroads were built too to facilitate trade and transportation. France got Morocco started with their industries by building mining plants and influencing their music, food, and culture. Modern day Morocco has a lot of French style bakeries and universities teach math and science in French [ 2 ] . What France gave to this striving nation helped them. Various infrastructures were constructed; their culture was enriched by the French's, and modern day Morocco is heavily influenced by France's lifestyle and language. France didn't only leave behind a positive legacy, Spain too left favorable impacts on Equatorial Guinea. Historian and author Tim Harry said that "Equatorial Guinea achieved some of the highest literacy rates amongst local people anywhere in the continent" [ 3 ] due to the effects of Spanish imperialism. This is an amazing contribution to the country in terms of education and as historian Tunde Obadina analyzed, "Colonialism laid the seeds of the intellectual and material development in Africans". [ 4 ] Economically, Spain improved the country tremendously as they created more jobs and it resulted in Equatorial Guinea having the highest income per capita rate compared to her bordering countries [ 5 ] . With the help of both these European countries, small nations such as Morocco and Equatorial Guinea were able to develop and further narrow the economic gap between their nations and the Europeans.
