The EurAfrican Forum organization announced today the presence of the President of Mozambique, His Excellency Filipe Nyusi, for an institutional speech on the first day of the event, July 4, 2019, on the same day that António Vitorino, Director General for the International Organization for Migrations – UN Migration Agency (IOM) will address the migration dialogue between Europe and Africa.

After the 2018 edition where the launch theme was «Crafting Coalitions for Change», this year the Forum will follow the discussions towards "Partnership of Equals: Sharing Values, Sharing Prosperity" – a new approach and paradigm for the relationship between Europe and Africa, changing the narrative for both continents to create an accountable, prosperous and sustainable future together.

By invitation-only, the EurAfrican Forum is a networking and discussion platform underpinned on the power of Diasporas for connecting people, cities, regions and continents, gathering prominent and influential people that are forging enduring ties between the two continents - government officials, high profile business personalities, investors, young entrepreneurs, activists, social influencers, NGOs and media.

Five panel discussions will take place around the topics: i) building a new Africa–Europe relationship based on mutual respect towards investment and trade; ii) raise awareness of the 'continent of the future' innovation potential; iii) face migration flows as an opportunity for growth, talent and employment source; iv) Africa as the land of opportunity and playground where impact investment and innovation is the upfront; and v) transform cultural and historical heritage into an economic asset for countries' economies, suitable for tourism-oriented activity.

Also, five parallel roundtable sessions for deeper discussions about related topics, namely: rebuilding Mozambique; security, migration and talent; Europe-Africa market and economic integration; digital infrastructure for Africa; and Africa data insights.

Hosted by the Portuguese Diaspora Council and the Municipality of Cascais, with the High Patronage of the Presidency of the President of the Portuguese Republic and the Government of Portugal, led by José Manuel Durão Barroso (Chairman of the EurAfrican Forum and former President of the European Commission / former Prime Minister of Portugal) and Filipe de Botton (Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Portuguese Diaspora Council).

With the contribution of 25 international speakers, arriving from several African and European countries, the Forum will position the youth as the hope for a better future, inspiring transformational action for a sustainable common future.
