Covid-19 has hit Africa and Europe hard on many levels. Rebuilding a more resilient economy is of key importance after the end of the Covid-19 pandemic. The two continents can best tackle this great challenge in cooperation. At the same time, the crisis offers both continents the opportunity for a green transition.
The Africa Roundtable is a new forum for decision-makers from politics, business and society for European-African cooperation. The dialogue platform provides a space for current pressing questions and challenges of the neighboring continents as well as partnership solutions and models of future cooperation to be discussed.
Focusing on ‘African-European Cooperation on Green Transition and Covid-19 Recovery’, the first Africa Roundtable event will take place on 9 June 2021 at 10.00 – 12.30 hrs (CEST / CAT). The convening will feature high-level speakers, panelists and participants.
Opening keynote addresses will be delivered by President of the Federal Republic of Germany – HE Dr Frank-Walter Steinmeier and President of the Republic of Senegal – HE Macky Sall. AFIDEP Executive Director, Dr. Eliya Zulu is among the selected participants attending the event.
