The Office of the Ethiopian Head of Government recalled on his X social network account, formerly Twitter, that the summit (CwA) was launched in Berlin in 2017 under the presidency of the G20.
“The G20 CwA has become a platform for dialogue and cooperation between reform-oriented African countries, G20 partners, and beyond,” the publication said.
Improving the economic conditions of the CwA States to make them more attractive for foreign private investment is the purpose of the meeting.
The work agenda offers two panel discussions and many networking opportunities to develop relations between Germany and Africa.
The first panel will discuss challenges and opportunities in sustainable value chains and investment opportunities in energy supply.
The second focuses on the promotion of German investment and trade in African Compact countries and investigates developments in business cooperation.
This year, in addition to the 10 countries of the Compact with Africa (Egypt, Ethiopia, Benin, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Morocco, Rwanda, Senegal, Togo, and Tunisia), South Africa, Nigeria, Angola, Mauritius, Kenya, and the Democratic Republic will be included with the Congo, Comoros, and Zambia as guests.
The president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the Council of the bloc, Charles Michel, the president of France, Emmanuel Macron, and the Dutch prime minister, Mark Rutte, also participated, according to the official sources.
On the sidelines of the event, Ahmed met with Macron and stated that “our strengthened relations and multifaceted cooperation continue to be anchored in trust and mutual interest for sustainable development.”
