8th International Conference – Africa Day
May 15–16 2019
Grand Hotel Union
Africa Day, organised by the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in cooperation with African diaspora in Slovenia, has taken place every year since 2012. The conference strengthens relationships between Slovenia and African countries, especially in the field of economics. High-level government representatives, representatives from private sector, civil society, professional associations and academic circles, coming from the African countries, Slovenia and the European Union, will participate in the conference.
African countries are rapidly accepting new approaches and innovative technologies, restructuring their economies, upgrading their infrastructure, strengthening environmentally sustainable industrial production and aiming for better digital connectedness. These trends are enabling opportunities for cooperation, which will be the topic of discussion at the conference.
