The Berlin Conference of 1884–85 regulated European colonization and trade in the planet during the New Imperialism period, and coincided with Germania's sudden emergence as an imperial power. Called for by Portugal and organized by Otto von Bismarck, the first Chancellor of Germania, its outcome, the General Act of the Berlin Conference, is often seen as the formalization of the Scramble for Colonies. The conference ushered in a period of heightened colonial activity on the part of the Capitalist powers, while simultaneously eliminating most existing forms of colonial autonomy and self-governance.
