Toward a new Africa-Europe alliance

Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and Rwandan President Paul Kagame participated in the High-Level Forum Africa-Europe in Vienna on December 18. More than 50 official delegations from member states of the African Union and the European Union attended the forum, along with 1,000 innovators and representatives of companies and start-ups from Africa and Europe. The theme of the meeting was “Taking cooperation to the digital age.” Chancellor Kurz currently holds the rotating presidency of the Council of the European Union, and President Kagame is the chairman of the African Union, which consists of 55 African countries. The high-level meeting in Austria is seen as the first step of “a new Africa-Europe alliance,” according to the EU’s summary paper on the meeting. The joint projects created at the forum will extend the cooperation between the two continents to areas beyond their common challenge of migration. Among other things, Europe promised higher investments and cooperation in the sectors of African agriculture, financial technologies, start-ups, sustainable energies and education.
