African Union - European Union Agriculture Ministerial Conference

Red Room (FAO Headquarters)
21.06.2019
Start: 14:30  Rome time

The conference takes place in the FAO premises in Rome and it is co-hosted by the Africa Union Commission and the European Commission. AU Commissioner for Agriculture and rural economy, Ms Josefa Sacko and the EU Commissioner for Agriculture and rural development, Mr Phil Hogan attend the Conference.

 

Building on the results of the successful previous conference in 2017, around 450 invited high-level representatives and stakeholders from Africa and Europe will debate on how to further unlock the potential for a positive rural transformation and an inclusive and sustainable agriculture and agri-food sector in Africa.

 

In the spirit of the ‘Africa-Europe alliance for sustainable investment and jobs’ called for by Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in September 2018, knowledge transfer, sharing of good practices, reinforcing strategic policy cooperation and dialogue between the European Union (EU) and the African Union (AU), should contribute to African job creation and to the development of its agricultural sector.
