About the Summit

After the first EU-African SME Summit in Brussels in 2019, when 10 African and European SME support organisations signed – under the good auspices of the European Commission – the EU-African SME Alliance, and where the basic values and strategic visions for a better economic cooperation between Europe and Africa have been shared, it is now time to explore more in depth the opportunities for investment and trade among small and medium-sized enterprises in the two neighbouring continents.

The 2020 edition of the EU-African SME summit in Rome intends to highlight the chances for entrepreneurs and define together with decision makers and experts the roads towards a successful economic cooperation of dynamic and future-oriented companies in Africa and Europe.
