The ECR Group is looking with great interest to the address from Commission President von der Leyen on the State of the European Union on Wednesday morning. The ECR believes that the legislative should now focus on Europe’s economic recovery. However, the European Conservatives and Reformists have always stated that the current health crisis should not be exploited as an opportunity to establish an even more centralised Europe. The ECR opposes centralist Brussels impositions, and believes that the EU should be more flexible and respectful of the prerogatives of the different countries.

Building on the success of the first ECR Africa Summit in 2019, this year’s Summit will examine and discuss policy options to develop a stronger relationship between Europe and Africa as we enter a new decade. Africa and Europe are in the midst of a massive transformation in their economic, political and social structures and can learn much from each other in seizing new opportunities and tackling their common challenges. Four high level panel discussions will address specific topics such as: governance and stability; the role of women in the successful development in Africa; the tools available to further mobilise private investment in Africa; and discuss the role of both European and African companies in the digitalisation of the African continent.
