EBS in dialogue with EU Commissioner Urpilainen

On 30 June 2020 Arnaud Thysen, EBS Director General, joined the online debate organised by Friends of Europe on the next generation of Africa-Europe relations and the post COVID developments with Jutta Urpilainen, Commissioner for International Partnerships.

Africa and Europe have a shared interest in accelerating work on the global agenda for sustainable development and facing together a climate emergency. The Covid-19 crisis is exposing the lack of resilience on the fundamentals of life and the urgency to rethink our common future as Africa and Europe.

EBS confirmed its role in promoting the interaction between European and African business as development and growth enabler of trade between the two continents.
