The 3rd African Union – European Union Agriculture Ministerial Conference will take place in the FAO premises in Rome and it will be co-hosted by the Africa Union Commission and the European Commission. AU Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Economy, Ms Josefa Sacko and the EU Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, Mr Phil Hogan are all expected to attend.
Building on the results of the successful previous conference in 2017, around 450 invited high-level representatives and stakeholders from Africa and Europe will debate on how to further unlock the potential for a positive rural transformation and an inclusive and sustainable agriculture and agri-food sector in Africa.
