Africa has been and will continue to be a priority for the Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament. For us, Africa is an equal partner in endeavours, aspirations and dreams to fight inequality so our actions must mirror this reality. The global pandemic of COVID-19 has magnified the scourge of inequality within Africa. Inequality and its resolution, compounded by old challenges of extreme poverty, hunger and unemployment, is our main focus of concern.
We are pleased to announce that the 4th edition of our Africa Week Initiative will take place from Tuesday 13 to Thursday 15 October 2020.
