Strengthening the partnership between the European Union and the African Union

Leaders are expected to discuss how the two unions can work together to address common challenges and achieve greater prosperity. The focus is on an ambitious investment package based on opportunities and challenges in a number of areas, not least climate change and the ongoing health crisis. The meeting will also address tools and solutions for promoting peace and security.

The government believes that human rights, gender equality and women’s rights, as well as all other aspects of the rule of law and democracy, should be at the heart of building a stronger partnership with Africa. This lays the foundation for the ability to succeed in peace and security as well as in investment and growth. The government also attaches great importance to green change with a focus on the climate and health package that will be adopted at the summit.

Together with leading experts, all Heads of State and Government participate in two thematic round table discussions.

The round table discussions address the following topics:

  • financing growth
  • Health care systems and agriculture Vaccine production and sustainable development
  • Education, culture, migration and mobility
  • Supporting the private sector, economic integration, peace and security, and governance
  • Climate change, energy transformation, digitalization and transportation

Prime Minister Magdalena Anderson will participate in roundtable discussions on financing growth, education, culture, migration and mobility.

The declaration will guide the partnership between the European Union and the African Union in the coming years. The Declaration includes a series of annexes that reflect the topics of the roundtable discussions.

The most recent EU-African Union summit was held in Abidjan, the capital of Côte d’Ivoire, in 2017.
