The President of the Republic of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, as the current Chairperson of the African Union, and the Federal Chancellor of the Republic of Austria, Sebastian Kurz, as Austria holds the rotating Presidency of the Council of the EU, cordially invite African and European heads of State or government, CEOs of major global companies, as well as innovative entrepreneurs and stakeholders, to a high-level Forum Africa-Europe.

The forum’s theme ‘Taking cooperation to the digital age’ promotes innovation and digitalisation as important enablers for our future development, so that everyone can benefit from the ongoing digital transformation. A lot of innovation is happening both in Africa and in Europe, with many creative start-ups providing solutions for different emerging challenges, and this forum is an opportunity to showcase them and to learn from each other.
