Trade to top agenda at South Africa-EU summit

Trade and diplomatic ties between the largest economies in Africa and Europe will top the agenda at the fourth annual South Africa-European Union summit on September 15, an official said Tuesday. The high-level meeting will focus on "national issues, regional and African issues and trade," Roeland van de Geer, the EU's ambassador to South Africa, told journalists. He said the summit would also discuss South Africa's preparations to host the next major round of UN climate talks from November 28 to December 9 in the eastern port city of Durban.

The EU has given South Africa six million euros ($8.7 million) toward the climate conference, which activists are calling a last-ditch chance to renew the emissions reduction targets in the Kyoto Protocol, the only binding global deal to cut greenhouse gases.

EU President Herman van Rompuy, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton are all expected at the meeting, to be held at Kruger National Park, South Africa's largest.
