Europe and Africa are the closest neighbours and what happens to one will affect the other. Whether it is job creation, combatting climate change, management of migration or the fight against terrorism – we believe that the key to success lies in a successful Africa-EU partnership.
The two European Union Delegations in Addis Ababa commemorated Europe Day 2018 in the presence of EU and AU Member States, the African Union Commissioners and staff, the Ethiopian government officials, national and international partner organisations, friends and family.
