Head of the African Union Commission to address Parliament

Moussa Faki Mahamat, Chairperson of the African Union Commission will address MEPs at 12.00 on Tuesday in the Strasbourg Chamber.

A joint press point by EP President Antonio Tajani and Mr Faki Mahamat will take place afterwards.

Migration, sustainable development, economic diplomacy as well as youth and cooperation issues to do with peace and security on the continent should be among the issues to be raised by Chad’s former foreign minister Mr Faki Mahamat.

Earlier this month, the EU proposed a reinforced partnership with Africa on peace and security, and job creation for youth in the two continents. The fifth EU-Africa Summit will take place in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, in November 2017, with youth as the key theme. The summit will be a critical opportunity for African and European leaders to reshape and deepen their relationship.
