Eritrea will attend the 4th EU-Africa Summit which will take place in Brussels on 2-3 April 2014, according to an Eritrean diplomat.
The summit will bring together African and EU leaders, as well as the leaders of EU and African Union institutions.
Discussions at the summit will focus on the theme “Investing in People, Prosperity and Peace”. Topics will include education and training, women and youth, legal and illegal migrant flows between both continents, ways to stimulate growth and create jobs, investing in peace and ways to enhance EU support for African capacities to manage security on the continent.
Eritrea enjoys good relations with the EU. Last month, the Eritrean government appointed Negassi Kassa Tekle as its next ambassador to the European bloc.
