Elmau meeting with African partners
On the second day of the Elmau summit, the heads of state and government of Ethiopia, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal and Tunisia and the Chairperson of the Commission of the African Union were invited to an outreach meeting for an in-depth dialogue on global policy issues, Africa, and the development initiatives of the G7. The meeting was also attended by representatives of Iraq and international organisations.
By holding this meeting, the German G7 Presidency demonstrated its interest in forging a global partnership: the G7 heads of state and government did not talk about Africa but with Africa, discussing global policy issues and the development initiatives to be launched by the summit. In that way, our partners were also able to have their perspectives reflected in the summit debates.
