EU - AU step up their cooperation for young people, jobs & peace

African Union and European Union Commissioners today adopted concrete measures to address pressing global issues in key areas such as peace and security, migration, job creation and agriculture. This 9th Commission to Commission meeting of the two organisations was co-chaired by the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker and the Chairperson of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, with the participation of all African Union Commissioners and 16 European Union Commissioners. The two sides had agreed on a set of priorities at the November 2017 AU-EU Summit in Abidjan (link is external) and today the two Commissions took stock of progress made to chart the way forward. At this occasion, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said: "We met today to translate words into concrete action. We launched programmes worth €400 million to support, amongst others, African youth – which is all the more important, as 60% of Africa's population is under 25 years old. The future of the world depends on the good cooperation between Europe and Africa." African Union Chairperson Moussa Faki Mahamat added: “Multilateralism is the only response to today's global challenges in an increasingly polarised world. The AU-EU partnership is based on shared values and shared responsibilities and offers a unique platform to address common challenges linked to peace, security and sustainable development on both our continents.”
