18/12/2018

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, the European Union and Cooperation, Josep Borrell, participated today in the Africa-Europe Forum, held in Vienna.
 
The Minister stressed that the Forum in Vienna is proof of the increasing importance of Africa and the EU-Africa relations. In this regard, the underlying theme, cooperation in the digital era, highlights the need of understanding that Africa and its development are a growing opportunity both for African and European people, and that the Europe-Africa relations have new and important opportunities to develop.
 
Josep Borrell reiterated the need of benefiting from all the opportunities and, specially, from those provided by innovation and digitalisation, in order to unleash the full inclusive and sustainable growing potential of Africa and its relations with the EU.
 
On the other hand, the Minister expressed his satisfaction for the Africa-Europe Alliance for Sustainable Investment and Employment initiative submitted by President Juncker.
