The treaty caused European's to want territory in Africa. (Later known as the "Scramble for Africa")
All the competition even created wars!
The main nations involved are Britain, France, and Germany.
Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck, from Germany, called a conference to try to resolve all the "rush for territory"
After the meeting there were 3 bans placed. first Europeans got access to the rivers for trade, secondly there was a concern for the slave trade, lastly a ban was put on importing firearms in to Africa.
The treaty they created was called the Treaty of Berlin.
