Sustainable and inclusive development and growth and continental integration

Europe and Africa have both chosen the route of regional integration to facilitate peace, stability and economic growth. Regional integration, trade and investment are vectors of economic stability and inclusive and sustainable growth. Well integrated regional markets with efficient infrastructure will attract investment and facilitate business, enhance employment creation and revenues as well as enhance access to improved quality goods and services.

The strategic objective of this area of cooperation between Africa and Europe is to stimulate economic growth that reduces poverty, create decent jobs and mobilise the entrepreneurial potential of people, in particular the youth and women, in a sustainable manner. This includes support to the development of the private sector, small and medium-sized enterprises as well as support to the continental integration process, notably through accelerated infrastructure development, energy, industrialisation and investment.
