On 21 June 2019 the The African Union (AU) – European Union (EU) ministerial meeting took place in Rome at the FAO Headquarters. It was co-hosted by the Africa Union Commission and the European Commission.
The AU-EU ministerial meetings take place on an ad hoc basis to monitor the progress achieved between summits, and to advance cooperation between both continents in certain fields.
Building on the results of the successful previous conference in 2017, around 400 invited high-level representatives and stakeholders from Africa and Europe debated on how to further unlock the potential for a positive rural transformation and an inclusive and sustainable agriculture and agri-food sector in Africa.
The conference was webstreamed.
