European leaders are discussing two topics this week……Ukraine and Africa.

The current situation in and around Ukraine may represent the biggest short term threat to the peace and prosperity of Europe. 

But the biggest opportunity for Europe is to our south, in Africa.

 The population of Africa is set to double by 2050. Working together Europeans and Africans complement one another.

 The past behaviour of Europeans in the colonial era has left a legacy that has not yet been fully acknowledged and overcome. 

 But the focus should be on the opportunities.

A report  by the European Council on Foreign Relations highlights some of these opportunities.
