EU-Africa Business Summit: Unlocking Africa's economic potential
Based on previous successful editions of the EU-Africa Business Summit organised in Marrakech (2018 – 2019) and in Brussels (2019), the EBS organisation is willing to pursue its mission of promoting and facilitating the interaction between the EU and Africa.
The fourth edition of the EU-Africa Business Summit, held in a new hybrid format, will seek to find answers to the most important policy challenges shaping the common future of both continents by bringing influential business leaders, policymakers and experts together.
Thanks to its role of stable North gate to the African continent, Morocco continues to represent the perfect host of the Summit within the renewed EU-Africa Alliance.
After the interruption due to the Covid pandemic, the EU cannot miss the chance to resume the EU-Africa partnership and take it to the next level. This ambitious Summit will position itself in this framework, providing a privileged debating and networking platform to directly engage in finding answers to the most critical challenges.
In particular, the participants will address the topics of Africa’s Value Chain Expansion, Healthcare Innovation, Digital Transformation and Clean Energy Transition.
The European Union and Africa must continue their privileged partnership. Nevertheless, for this future to be mutually prosperous, both continents must create a new alliance based on fair and sustainable partnerships. It is also essential for the EU and Africa to clearly establish their common objectives and the means to fulfil them.
