AFRICA-EUROPE: TOWARDS A PARTNERSHIP ADAPTED TO THE REALITIES OF THE 21ST CENTURY

On the eve of the Africa-Europe Summit which will be held in Brussels in early April, I should like to offer some ideas and proposals for consideration so that this meeting, raising as it does such great hopes, can be both a turning point and an opportunity for a new start.

THE FATES OF AFRICA AND EUROPE ARE CLOSELY INTERTWINED

African Geopolitics — YOU HAD BEEN ONE OF THE CHIEF INITIATORS  OF THE JOINT AFRICA-EUROPEAN UNION STRATEGY ADOPTED AT THE SECOND AFRICA-EU SUMMIT IN LISBON IN DECEMBER 2007. WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO FOCUS ON THIS ANGLE IN EUROPEAN POLICY? Jose Manuel Barroso — I have always highlighted the need to create deeper relations between Europe and Africa...

TOWARDS A NEW GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP

Between 2000 and 2009, eleven African countries grew at an annual rate of 7 percent or more, which is considered sufficient to double their economies in ten years. Africa’s collective GDP at over US$2 trillion today is roughly equal to Brazil’s or Russia’s, and larger than India’s. On the economic front, Africa is now seen as a vibrant frontier market and an emerging pole of growth.

THE FOUNDATIONS OF REVITALISED COOPERATION

Institutional Europe is patiently fashioning the collective destiny of its peoples; we share with it the core values of peace, freedom, democracy, respect for human rights and diversity. Together, we took these values to the recent Senegalese elections, supported by the European Union — from the reform of our electoral instruments to the publication of the results.

TOWARDS NEW EURO-AFRICAN HORIZONS

In a constantly and rapidly evolving globalised world, one thing is certain: Africa and Europe, which have their geographical proximity in common, are also linked by their history and share many values. Their populations have coexisted and intermingled, over the years, in times of trial, solidarity and hope, their economies are broadly interdependent and they owe it to each other to keep their promises...

AFRICA-EU: CURRENT SITUATION AND PROSPECTS

Adopted in Lisbon in 2007, the Joint Africa-EU Strategy (JAES) was  supposed  to  be  the  framework  for  a  new  political partnership  between  the  two  continents,  moving  beyond  the traditional donor/beneficiary relationship characteristic of their former relations, based on common values and objectives.

TOGETHER IN A GLOBALISED WORLD

Since the end of the Second World War, many nations turned their  backs  on  the  territorial  military  conquest  wars  and embarked on a course of new economic domination. We are living in a time of the emergence of new industrial nations in the globalisation of  economies;  former  colonial  metropolises  are  now  in  direct competition with their former colonies....

AFRICA-EUROPE, THE NEW EQUATION

Until now the relationship between the two continents had been structured on the basis of two principal modalities. The first could be called the “historical channel,” i.e. the development aid activity conducted by the powers which had, at one time or another, assumed responsibilities in the context of the colonial system.

REFORMING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN EUROPE AND AFRICA

Europe (the European Union and its Member States) continues to be the African continent’s top partner. In Africa it accounts for over 50% of trade and aid flows and for two thirds of investment flows. Nevertheless, major transformations of Euro-African relations can be observed which are still significantly asymmetrical; 40% of Africa’s trade is done with the countries of the South.

STRONG BONDS AND COMMON ISSUES

Under the fascinating slogan of “Two unions, one vision,” the 4th Africa-European Union summit will be held in Brussels on 2 and 3 April 2014, three and a half years after the summit held in Tripoli. Based on the theme of “Investing for prosperity and peace,” the summit will be an opportunity for Africa and the European Union to “reflect thoroughly together on where their partnership stands today, its content and value added, its implementation…
