What: 2020 Africa-France Summit

When: 04–06 June, 2020

Where: Bordeaux, France

The 28th Africa-France Summit, with a new format, will be an important event for politics, the economy, sports and culture. The central theme of the summit is sustainable cities and regions. The cities of the future should not only offer essential infrastructure and services for residents they should also be safe, fit to live in and appealing, particularly for young people. The issues of transport infrastructure, waste processing, environmentally friendly agriculture and access to healthcare, education, culture and sport will all be addressed.

The summit will bring together stakeholders from institutions (French and African Heads of State and Government), the public sector (relevant ministries, mayors, governors and heads of regional councils, government agencies, international and regional organisations) and financial institutions (banks, insurance firms, investment funds, foundations and multilateral, regional and bilateral funds), private companies (start-ups, SMEs and major groups) and stakeholders from civil society (nonprofit organisations for young people, women and disadvantaged neighbourhoods, NGOs, unions, federations, cooperatives and professional associations).
