President Paul Kagame is in Ivory Coast where he is attending the 5th African Union-European Union (AU-EU) summit slated from this Wednesday to Thursday.

Upon Kagame’s arrival in Abidjan, Ivory Coast at Félix-Houphouët-Boigny airport he was received by President Alassane Ouattara, reads Office of the President’s Tweet.

This year’s summit is being conducted under the theme ‘Investing in youth for a sustainable future’.

African and European Heads of State and Government gather for the summit including the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk; the president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker; the President of the African Union, IdrissDéby and the Chairperson of the African Union Commission, MoussaFaki.

2017 is a defining year for AU-EU relations as it has been ten years since the adoption of the Joint Africa-EU Strategy.

Taking stock of the progress made since the Brussels Summit in 2014, African and European Leaders will be given the opportunity to provide guidance in order to jointly address current and future challenges and to deepen their strategic partnership, launched in 2007 with the adoption of the Joint Africa-EU Strategy.
