Following the successful first edition, the EU-Africa Business Summit returns to Marrakech November 28-29, with the participation of influential African and European policymakers, business leaders and experts.
Over two days, the Summit will provide a platform for engaging debates, high-level panel discussions and inspiring sharing and steering sessions on industrialization and value chain development, rural development and agriculture, the challenges of digitalization and investment opportunities in renewable energies.
The over 300 participants will have an opportunity to discuss the future economic relations between the EU and Africa, investment opportunities and the establishment of sustainable partnerships between the two sides.
The summit organizers say the event is meant to debate political, economic, social and environmental issues to promote the voices of enterprises in Europe and Africa. In order to move towards a more efficient partnership between the two continents, a multi-sectorial dialogue must promptly be consolidated at both institutional and business levels and the public and private sectors must join forces at inter-continental, regional and local levels.
High-level speakers from important international institutions such as the African Union, the African Development Bank, UNIDO and the Hassan II Fund for Economic and Social Development will take part in this event.
