The fifth EU-Africa Business Forum is taking place in Brussels from 31 March to 1 April. The forum will bring together over 500 high level personalities from the European and African private sectors, as well as political leaders such as European Commission President José Manuel Barroso, EU Council President Herman Van Rompuy and Nkosazana Dlamani-Zuma, Chairperson of the African Union Commission.
The European Investment Bank will be represented by Vice-President Pim Van Ballekom.
The forum provides a platform to discuss how to use the EU-Africa partnership to ways to meet today’s challenges in a constructive manner, and affords European and African businesses the chance to network and and exchange views on EU-Africa business and investment relations.

Following on from the forum, Vice-President van Ballekom will also be representing the EIB at the EU-Africa Summit, also in Brussels, from 2 to 3 April.
