After careful considerations and close consultations with the stakeholders and partners, the Forum has been postponed to 2021.  We will continue to keep you informed as revised details are announced.

The Forum is jointly organized by the European Commission with the African Union Commission and African and European business organizations. It will bring together around 3000 participants from both continents, business and public leaders. Providing an unrivaled venue for high-level dialogue and networking on issues pertaining to both continents, it brings together African and European business leaders from a range of organizations to discuss how to improve the business and investment climate between Africa and the EU.

The 7th EU-Africa Business Forum (EABF), which will immediately precede the AU-EU Summit, will be a decisive moment for senior political and business leaders, policy makers and other stakeholders to review all strategic aspects of the EU-Africa relationship. Aiming at a mutually beneficial, sustainable and inclusive prosperity, the Forum’s ambition is to:

  • contribute to the urgent COVID response;
  • support AfCFTA implementation and the green transition;
  • improve trade and investment climate between the EU and Africa; 
  • reinforce high level public private dialogue 
  • enhance long-term dialogue structures between EU and Africa businesses;
  • showcase best practices including MoU signatures; and
  • unlock new business and investment opportunities.

To that end, a Joint Declaration by EU and AU private sectors will be adopted and feed into the Summit.
