The President of the European Council Charles Michel, speaking at the opening of the fourth Italy-Africa Conference, today in the Senate, indicated Italy’s role as the “leader” of a new European commitment in Africa. “Our political generation” said Michel “is faced with three great challenges, everywhere”: the crisis “with nature and the environment”, citing the Covid pandemic crisis and the climate emergency, “the technological crisis linked to digital agenda and the development of Artificial Intelligence” and the crisis, rather common according to Michel, “of the temptation to act unilaterally”. In this sense, Michel explained that “we must guarantee respect for international law as a community that has a common destiny: cooperation, respect and the will to work together must be the solution”.

“Respect and trust” underlined Michel: “Because one creates the other and vice versa”. The President of the European Council said that the Italian government’s Mattei Plan for Africa project goes in this direction: “It is part of a philosophy of relations that we want to weave with Africa, also with concrete projects and not only with large speeches” and indicated three major priority areas: security and peace, prosperity and the fight against illegal immigration through a different commitment to legal entry channels.

Michel, addressing “our friends at the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank” recalled the European commitment and activism for the reform of international financial governance and, more concretely, for a system of reforms of development banks: ” The G7 in Berlin said it was determined that the African Union would have more space in the G20″ to bring this type of request to international forums. “We will move forward in this spirit.”
