Event description
Continuing the conversation to build a stronger relationship between Europe and Africa as we enter a new decade.

About this Event

Building on the success of the first ECR Africa Summit in 2019, this year’s Summit will examine and discuss policy options to develop a stronger relationship between Europe and Africa as we enter a new decade.

Africa and Europe are in the midst of a massive transformation in their economic, political and social structures. Europe and Africa can learn much from each other in seizing new opportunities and tackling common challenges.

Four high level panel discussions will address specific topics such as governance and stability; the role of women in the successful development in Africa; examine the tools available to further mobilise private investment in Africa; and discuss the role of both European and African companies in the digitalisation of the African continent. Each panel will be followed by a question and answers session in order to inspire and engage participants to come forward with policy recommendations for future engagement.

Leading Questions:

  • How can we address the governance, political and stability challenges facing Africa and the EU?
  • How can we develop policies to encourage female leadership and participation in politics, business and society?
  • How can we mobilise investment for structural transformation Africa?
  • What can we do to foster business in Africa including in areas such as health and agriculture?
