Policy Dialogue
Africa’s development - A key priority for Europe and Morocco

Tuesday, 27 March 2018

The African continent faces considerable challenges, including extreme poverty, climate change, transnational crime, violent extremism and conflict. As recognised most recently in the European Consensus on Development and in the EU Global Strategy, European foreign policy puts a lot of emphasis on development policies in response to these challenges. Morocco plays an important connecting role between neighbouring Europe and Africa and is also strongly committed to the development of the African continent. This Policy Dialogue, organised in cooperation with the Mission of the Kingdom of Morocco to the EU and NATO, addressed EU development policies in Africa and the role of the EU-Morocco partnership in this context, and looked at the challenges and opportunities of South-South and triangular cooperation carried forward by Morocco.

Speakers included: Ahmed Reda Chami, Ambassador, Head of the Mission of the Kingdom of Morocco to the EU and NATO, Ahmat Awad Sakine, Ambassador, Permanent Representative of the African Union to the EU, Colin Scicluna, Acting Managing Director for the Middle East and North Africa, EEAS.
