WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says he's seeing the emergence of a new, more prosperous Africa even as the continent continues to face great challenges.

Obama commented Wednesday as he closed an unprecedented meeting in Washington with African leaders.

Earlier in the day, he called on African nations to be forceful in tackling the health, security and government corruption tests that could stunt economic progress on the continent.

The conference was aimed at shifting U.S. relations with Africa away from humanitarian aid and toward more equal economic partnerships.

Obama announced $33 billion in commitments mostly from the private sector to invest in Africa and help create jobs in the U.S.

More than 50 African heads of state and government were in Washington for three days of talks.
