6th African Union - European Union Summit

17 February - 18 February 2022
Brussels

The EU-African Union Summit will be the culminating moment when African and European Heads of State and Government meet to determine joint priorities for their common future.

17 February - 18 February 2022

The summit will present a unique opportunity to lay the foundations for a renewed and deeper AU-EU partnership with the highest political involvement and based on trust and a clear understanding of mutual interests. Leaders are expected to discuss how both continents can build greater prosperity. The aim is to launch an ambitious Africa-Europe Investment Package, taking into account global challenges such as climate change and the current health crisis. They should also be talking about tools and solutions to promote stability and security through a renewed peace and security architecture.

A series of thematic roundtables will also be organised. The following topics will be debated:

  • growth financing
  • health systems and vaccine production
  • agriculture and sustainable development
  • education, culture and vocational training, migration and mobility
  • private sector support and economic integration
  • peace, security and governance
