The President of Ghana, Nana Addo Akufo-Addo, will visit Portugal next month and take part alongside his Portuguese counterpart in a dialogue that will close the EuroAfrican Forum 2023 on July 19, a source from the event’s organizers revealed.

The Portuguese President, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, and his Ghanaian counterpart are the speakers at the moment called ‘Dialogue with the President’, which closes two days of work at the EuroAfrican Forum, an official from the organization told Lusa.

Heads of State and members of governments from a dozen or so countries, investors, managers, and academics will explore opportunities and analyze concrete projects to bring Europe and Africa closer together at the EuroAfrican Forum 2023, to be held at the Nova SBE college in Carcavelos.

The Portuguese Diaspora Council, a non-governmental organization for development founded under the high patronage of the President of the Republic in 2012, is the organizer of the event, which will take place on July 18 and 19 and is expected to be attended by at least 500 people.

Among them, the organization has confirmed the presence of ministers and public decision-makers from all the Portuguese-speaking African Countries (PALOP), that is, Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and São Tomé and Príncipe, as well as South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Rwanda, and has manifested the will of others to participate, which may exceed ten.

In this 6th edition, digital transformation and further integration into a global digital ecosystem, green transformation and economic necessity and opportunity to bring Europe and Africa closer together, quality education through research cooperation and innovation are the topics under discussion.

Strengthening health systems, with a focus on manufacturing and access to vaccines, medicines and health technologies, supporting sustainable financing for growth, identifying opportunities and challenges of EU-Africa internationalization and cross-border trade, and connecting Africa and Europe through sustainable infrastructure and transport fill other panels of work over the two days.
